How To: Claim Your Business on Yelp


Yelp is an extremely popular consumer-facing review site that has a serious influence on decision-making for people looking at places to dine out or order in. Restaurants are the second highest reviewed category on Yelp, with 17%. Diners are leaving reviews, and potential customers are reading that feedback & taking action on it. Your online reputation is just as important as good old-fashioned word of mouth.
