    I apologize if this has been discussed before - have not found anything through search.

    Am curious if there are any reputable methods for creating fake Yelp accounts (perhaps tied to take Facebook accounts, use of proxies, buying Yelp accounts, etc), and posting 5-star reviews without getting your reviews filtered? Any tried and tested methods?

    Thanks!

    If you search on fiverr there are a bunch of people willing to review businesses and write up ratings for them. If you're getting paid less than $5 per review from your client, you're doing it wrong.

    Hi GiftGuru - Do you have a specific microworker you have had success with?

    I have client that wants 40-50 yelp followers/friends/reviews for $40. Doesn't sound good to me. Anyone have any way to mass produce yelp accounts with reviews?

    Yelp filters FIVERR reviews, so be careful about using FIVERR for this. It comes up first when you search Google for buying Yelp reviews, so it is too well known for Yelp to miss.

    BUMP... need more reviews for my yelp...

    Oh yea, I had two reviews filtered b4. How will this microworker avoid a filter since mine is locally based.

    MicroWorkers used to work from Yelp reviews but hat was like a year ago when Yelp was less strict and microworkers allowed Yelp reviews. Now both of those are untrue. Best way is to find people on here that have seasoned yelp accounts and trade reviews. Yelp is sure a pain in the A$$.

    Good luck
