    i'm tempted to buy backlinks for my yelp page.

    I figure since yelp is a super high authority site with millions of its own backlinks, I won't get penalized.

    Any opinions or thoughts?

    Just trying to think outside the box i guess.

    Its not a common practice. I'd imagine Yelp monitors inbound links and might take issue if they feel you are abusing linkbuilding to it. I know that's the case with some authority sites. I see more down side than up.

    I think it worth giving a try possibly with a second account; not the primary one. :)

    I don't think, it would be a good practice.. I would try to avoid it at all cost.

    that's not a bad idea.

    Test it with a dummy account/business and see how strong the linkjuice gets.

    I personally don't care for my yelp pages for my businesses. I dont have many reviews and my clients don't look at it. My only reason to buy the links would be to increase the linkjuice to my main site and possibly get my yelp page to rank higher just so my site shows up more than once on page 1 for my keyword.
