***Update 10/2/17****  – Yelp is AGAIN showing ads for competitors. Better check your own page if you’re paying them…

I still think my August post about this should have made the national news, after I showed that Yelp was charging businesses to remove competitor ads, but showing ads anyway.!

Caught Yelp red handed

How many millions of dollars did they steal from how many businesses? Sadly, we’ll probably never know.

Here’s a video showing what they have been doing, presumably for years…

Regardless, this morning I noticed that although the word “Sponsored” still exists, they have no ads showing. None at all, when someone is paying to remove the reviews.

Yelp seems to no longer be stealing from advertisers

You’re welcome 😉
