YELP Unfair Business Practices Internet
Yelp contacted me to advertise my business with them. I listened to their presentation and was interested until they told me the price. I just couldnt afford the $600, so I declined. They called me several more times, I was always respectful to the people that called and explained that the fee was too high for me and that if the had a less expensive plan I would consider trying an ad. That wasn't available so i declined to place an ad.
I didn't give it much thought until a client told me they had recently posted a review for my business on yelp. I wnt to lookat it and couldn't find it . Then I went to my business page on Yelp and saw that in the filtered file there were 11FIVE STAR reviews that were all hidden. II knew that several were showing before I declined to advertise with them, now they are all gone. Don't think it was a coincidence.
Bottom line, unfair business practiices. Now even if I could afford to advertise with them I wouldn't
