YELP ACCUSED OF INTERNET RETALIATION

Seems that the new Yelp tactic is to increase the bounce rate of the website of your business.

After declining to even listen to the sales pitch, my website bounce rate went from a decent 45% to more than 90% on some days.

Bounce rate is something that Google looks at when ranking the site – it is when someone goes to the site and visits one page only and has no interaction with it.

  1. We received a 5 star review totally unsolicited.
    Yelp removed it and placed it in a comment not recommended area.
    Then coincidently yelp called to extract money for ads!!
    We felt like we were dealing
    With organized crime!
    Pay up or we’ll hurt your business!
    We are contacting our state
    Attorney general!
