A Five Star Partnership: Yelp’s Reviews and Ratings Are Now on Yahoo Search

A Five Star Partnership: Yelp’s Reviews and Ratings Are Now on Yahoo Search | Local SEO & Mobile | Scoop.it
By Anand Chandrasekaran, Senior Director, Product Management


We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve partnered with Yelp.


Now when you use Yahoo Search to look up a local business in the U.S. on your smartphone, tablet, or PC, you’ll see user reviews, business information, and star ratings from Yelp. We’ve also added a new photo viewing experience to show high-quality photos from Yelp, other partners, and the businesses themselves.





At Yahoo, we’re always looking to build great partnerships to provide a richer experience for our users. That’s why we’re especially fired up to add trusted user content from Yelp, bringing more business listings, more photos, and more reviews to the recently-refreshed Local Search and Yahoo Maps experiences. With information and photos for retail chains, mom and pop shops, spas, doctors and hospitals, restaurants, and more, Yelp is a welcome addition to our roster of local content partners.
