Misrepresenting and Cheating

To Whom It May Concern:

Do not advertise with YELP or YELP.COM

There are 2 main reasons why you should not try to advertise with them:

1. The system does not work! Promising 500 or 750 or 1500 counts of visibility does seem high to you at first, but the way they are rendering their software, the system "claims" to be generating over tens of thousands of searches per keyword - WHICH THEY DO NOT SHOW YOU -, a vast number, that is legitimating the fact that your ad will appear only on 1% or less than the total searches.

So no matter how many times you search for yourself, you will not see yourself. And when you bring up this issue you will be advised NOT TO SEARCH for yourself. Cute.

And also - the thing they say where you can TRACK your own searches - that does NOT GO FOR THE TRAFFIC GENERATED FOR THAT KEYWORD - it merely goes for the amount of shows they "claim" they have listed you.

2. THE CONTRACT AND THE SALES REPS ARE CONTRADICTING !!!

This is important ladies and gentlemen; I have been doing business for over 12 years in several countries and I own several clinics.

IF YOU SIGN A CONTRACT THAT TELLS YOU THAT YOU HAVE TO PAY THEM FOR AN ADDITIONAL 3 MONTHS AFTER YOU CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT then that is what they will bill you.

Your sales rep WILL PROMISE other cancellation policy alternatives, he will EMAIL YOU THESE THINGS IN WRITING, and he will also FAX YOU CUSTOMIZED AGREEMENTS -

- HOWEVER -

HE WILL STILL COME BY TO GET YOU TO SIGN THE "STANDARD" CONTRACT

- AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN -

IF YOU SIGN A CONTRACT IN NEW YORK, You will end up paying the price.


=== SUMMARY:
A system designed to cheat millions of their money with no results provided.

Misrepresenting and Cheating

Thanks Glenn and as we speak I'm rewriting my code to do exactly as you advise.

This scam artist company needs to be shut down as they not only remove good reviews but allow people that pay them to have legitimate bad reviews removed at will.
