A lot of the vendors with whom I work are not fans of Yelp. I actually love the site and believe in its value, but was totall caught off guard by a review on there today. Does anyone have strong opinions about Yelp, as business owners, one way or the other?
I looked into advertising with Yelp a few months ago but it wasn't in our budget, a bit high. However I did notice that our yelp free listing comes up on the first page of google for our keyword in our area, so I amloving them and I'm reconsidering advertising with them.
Don't pay! Keep your Free listing!
I am a Reno Wedding Photographer, I would fall on the love side of yelp. Although i have multiple legitimate testimonials that it refuses to acknowledge. I get some of my best clients from yelp, my five star review seems to help that. If i had all of the testimonials count I think i would rank higher and get more clients, which frustrates me.

Hi Jon. I get some of my best clients from Yelp, as well. That's why I love the forum. I just wish the actual company was as fabulous as its users;)
Hi there - I am also on Yelp - but no business from there... yet. We live in hope, but don't worry, its good to be 'out' and about in some sort of way - I say.
