The Yelp website and mobile app aren’t the only places where consumers can see Yelp reviews. Yelp reviews are also syndicated to several other major review sites and search engines. A recent study found Yelp reviews on the following major review sites:
The most recent addition to the mix is Yahoo. In March 2014, Yahoo and Yelp established a partnership in hopes of competing with Google. Yelp reviews are now included in Yahoo Search for all users in the United States. Yelp’s business information, photos, ratings and reviews are intended to help Yahoo users find businesses with greater ease. The partnership will bring more photos, reviews and business listings to both Yahoo Maps and Local Search experiences.
Instead of simply replacing the current supply of Yahoo Local reviews, Yelp is supplementing the site by allowing users to search for hospitals and doctors, restaurants, spas, retail chains and small businesses. Yelp agreed to a similar deal with Microsoft’s Bing in 2012.
