    Y3lps filter is very strict and seems to be affected from many different variables. It's tough, but here's what I've found out over the years that seems to help a bit.

    DOs
    *If your business profile is new, try to get established members (people with more than 5 reviews/friends) to post the first couple of reviews.
    *fill in all of the information you possible can, including photos and an easy to read business description, keeping spam to a minimum.
    *clear all cookies and cache before writing any reviews, or even visiting the site.

    DONTs
    *don't post any reviews from the same IP address that you use to access the admin panel of your profile page.
    *don't send reviewers to your actual business profile URL, instead direct them to the main Y3lp site and ask them to organically find your listing.
    *don't have a surge of people all review your business in a short time frame, they like to see them spaced out.
    *don't have employees (or y3lp accounts that can be traced back to your business) post any reviews.
    *don't solicit only 5 star reviews, if they see you're only getting 5 stars they will filter sooner or later. Not every customer will be 100% satisfied with every facet of their experience.

    It's not much to go on, but following the above guidelines will eventually get you some reviews that stick. Hope it helps a little.

    I was able to post a review from a VPS without any trouble. All you need is different, unblocked IP's. Yelp knows most of the proxy servers and blocks them completely.
