User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
Why am I docking one star? We always use this app to find restaurants and businesses, and it’s very usefully and easy to used. Unsure if this is a bug or by design, but it’s a huge pet peeve of mine and poorly executed if it’s by design. When I write longer reviews I tend to do a lot of cutting and pasting to move elements of my review around so they make more sense. However that’s not possible in the Yelp app for iPhones. So I write them outside of the app (for example in notes), so that I can really think about it, check for errors, etc. Then I want to copy and paste it from Notes into Yelp. But again for some reason on the app, Yelp has blocked the ability to cut and paste information into the reviews field. I would then have to go to a computer (outside of the app) to finish my review. What a pain. There’s no reason why I shouldn’t be able to cut, copy and paste (edit using IPhone editing capabilities) into the field when leaving a review. I would have left many many more reviews if this worked like any other app and and not blocked the ability to edit in that field. If you want more people to leave reviews, fix it. Editing didn’t exist in the iPhone 1, but was added thereafter. So no reason to limit people to editing as it was 10 years ago.
While looking for an apartment to rent I drove by Pineapple Grove Condominiums where in one of the apartment windows I found the phone no to the leasing agent and the treasurer’s cell contact of Liz O’Hara . After calling she met me promptly . She was very professional and friendly and showed me a unit on the second floor that was available to rent. The unit was very clean and more spacious than any other apartment that I had toured after a long day of hunting places to live in the area. After sleeping on it I decided it was a “perfect fit “! I called her the next day to set up an appointment to look at other units there available at Pineapple Grove to be sure I had made the right selection. Once again she answered and cheerfully met me promptly and I saw four other units and made my final decision. The procedure to be approved to be a tenant involved a few steps which she led me through quickly and involved a few steps and about three more meetings. Liz was always on time friendly and very informative . I am now a happy resident at Pineapple Grove thanks to Liz O’Hara and hoping we can be new friends!
Yelp has a place in the market however when it comes to construction contracting yelp has created a spot for haters. Point we build mega resort style outdoor living. Over 20 years hundreds of project A+ rating BBB no citations or disciplinary action from state contractors board. We run into contract language to govern our client inclusions and exclusions. We’re having client say if we don’t include a specific exclusion than as Graham S. Did leave a negative review. Notice he made no comment on the work fact is that would have exposed him to fraud if he stated such. Other bad reviews come from potential clients who just didn’t like our business model or pricing. In other words were the messenger of bad news when we tell them costs or if we’re not interested in there project. Not like a common consumer trend yelp is designed for. I would put my marketing dollars into yelp but as I have stated feel yelp has a did functional service towards industry that is more complicated than everyday uses.
I owned a restaurant and we had 4.5 to 4.75 rating on all other rating sites, except Yelp. On Yelp we had a 2.5. I went through the reviews and there were many that were 4 to 5 star reviews, but they were hidden on Yelp and not used in our rating. I contacted Yelp and they explained how these were not trustworthy reviews and that their system takes random reviews and creates our rating. Funny, there were two or three low reviews, they were all used, and /15-20 high reviews but only a few of those were used. Here the best part. Soon after I contacted them, i started getting calls from Yelp sales people wanting me to buy ads. I explained my issue with their rating system and they told me that if I bought ads, those negative reviews could be eliminated and more of the positive reviews used so that our overall rating would be better. It’s a scam and no one will ever change my mind on this. Just like Yahoo used to be. Yahoo advertised as this all knowing search engine, yet you had to pay to be on it, so it wasn’t search the web, it was searching its database. It’s just not honest. Yelp selects the reviews they use in the rating and if you pay them, they improve your rating. That too is just not honest. It’s a joke.
I used to love yelp, but seeing how sometimes it can hurt small businesses by one MAJOR bug it annoys me. I am all about writing positive reviews and the negative reviews so that others have better feedback on a location. The one bug that yelp really needs to fix that hurts places is that at the bottom of whatever location there is always an area that says reviews that are “not recommended” now I know some people will write their own reviews but I have seen many places that they have several reviews in this area. It bugs me a lot. Because this great cyber bot that they have working and approving reviews lets way too many reviews fall under this category. Especially for the price some people pay to have access to their yelp business astounds me. So, if you have read up until the end here’s my advice always check the bottom for the “reviews that are not recommended” because 90% of the time they are still honest reviews.
