    Hello folks.
    I have been working in an industry that uses Yelp as a base for pulling clients.
    Of course SEO and ranking on Google is key to maintaining your clientele, but a lot of these companies I worked with are always saying "YELP YELP YELP GET ME YELP REVIEWS."

    I've been doing a lot of digging around on this site and many other sites but I see very little to no information on boosting via yelp.
    Ex: I don't see any Yelp Bots, I don't see proxies for yelp, I don't see tricks on getting reviews to stick, I don't really see any information about yelp other than people asking for reviews.

    I personally despise yelp for many reasons, but despite the hate, is there any reason why there is so limited information on this topic?

    I apologize if this thread is in the wrong section, I spent 5 minutes trying to decide if I should put this topic in the lounge, or the blackhat section lol.
    Hope to get a discussion out of this.
