Re: “Yelp and the Business of Extortion 2.0

This was a great read, and as a small-business marketer myself, I, too, have felt the painful blow of what just may have been Yelp retaliation. Out of our 34 legitimate 5-star reviews, just three have been left unfiltered after being contacted by Yelp's advertising department. There were no negative reviews for them to even consider, but this didn't stop them from censoring over 90 percent of the good ones. If the free market works its magic, we can hopefully all migrate to Google Local relatively seamlessly, hopefully soon.

On an unrelated note, Consumer Reports is actually still non-profit. Don't scare me like that.
