    I want to start a company doing local SEO for businesses but for every niche I'm searching in (i.e. "city" + dentistry), the SERP (like the first 2-3 pages) are being hogged by business directories like Yelp.

    What the hell is a guy to do?

    Because local/places rankings is a big chunk of local SEO, and yelp cannot touch that part. Also, you should consider backlinking to your clients yelp page to get that ranking high.

    Good tip.

    So would I be able to outrank yelp? In other words google values the keywords on my site for local searches more than yelp?
