Yahoo Finance reports that Yelp is reportedly seeking strategic alternatives, which means the company may be for sale.
Hmmm… we wonder how this will play out since Yelp has a 2.5 star rating on Yelp.
To help potential buyers, we’ve written 3 Yelp-style reviews exclusively available on this web site (like we’re going to waste time writing on a web site that’s own users rate 2.5 out of 5)…
1. “This is my go to place to write clean-language, honest reviews that mysteriously get buried in a special-difficult-to-view section and don’t count toward the rating. Now that’s authentic Italian!”
2. “I love the way I search for one restaurant, and the top of the list features unrelated restaurants offering different cuisine in a different neighborhood. I’m sure the people who are considering paying for these seemingly ill-placed ads will love them as much as I do!”
3. “Sure, you can’t make reservations at all the top restaurants, like on Open Table. But with all the helpful reviews praising a restaurant I’ve never heard of, I can just assume some of the reviews are fake and all of the tables are available without a reservation any time of day!”
