Remove Negative Yelp Reviews
Yelp.com that is operated by Yelp, Inc is in fact a local directory service with social networking service and user reviews. Yelp’s revenues come from the local business advertising. It provides online local search capabilities for its visitors. The typical search on yelp includes what the user is seeking and the location from which the search is to be performed, entered as specific address. Each of the business listing result consists of a 5 point rating, reviews from the other site visitors, and the other details like the business address, hours, accessibility, and parking. Although the business owners do not own the reviews yet they can update the listing information. What the business owners cannot do is the deletion of the listing or changing the listing. Even the only changes can be made if the moderator approves the changes. Listings and related content are organized by city and a multitier categorization system. The other ways of discovering the listings is through the categorized reviews or through yelp member profiles and their review lists.
There are also filtered reviews on the yelp that do not show up but can be seen by clicking a link at the bottom of the page. The score from the filtered reports do not have any effect on the ratings of the business. In order to get to know the real sense of the filtered reviews we did a lot of research as well as came to the conclusion that the filtered users are meant for new users who have new accounts and are also not very active. For instance, the lack of friends or a profile picture can lead to the review being filtered.
Getting negative reviews on Yelp can be very harmful for the local businesses. Many businesses claim that the yelp does not publishes more positive reviews and rather focuses more on the negative reviews unless the business pays for the advertising on the site. In many cases the businesses have claimed that the yelp sales people have approached them and have said that unless they advertise with them they would remove the positive reviews on the site. In 2010 Yelp also faced a lawsuit that claimed that the yelp people had demanded $300 a month or more for the removal of the negative listings on the site.
The existence of a forum named Yelp Sucks has posts from the users with similar issues. Although there are no ways in which the negative listings can be removed from the yelp pages yet there are ways in which the overall rating can be brought up.
