How to Claim Your Business Listing on Yelp

yelpYelp is a user-generated content website that does reviews on local businesses. Anytime someone visits a business and has either a positive or negative experience, they can share their thoughts on Yelp.  Then, anytime someone else is looking for a certain type of business or wants to hear what others have to say about your business, they can do a search on Yelp to read reviews from other customers.

Pull up yelp.com on an Internet browser and enter your business name and city in the search section located at the top center of the page. Click on “search”, and find your listing. If your listing is not there, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on “add a business”.
