    Doing local SEO on a friend's business, similar to a real estate agent.

    They have Google Maps, Facebook and YellowPages all with great reviews.

    I never added them to Yelp because I feel it'd be just another headache. What do you guys think?

    It can be great for business but do your customers are online on Yelp ? If they do, create it.

    I was thinking more about for SEO purposes, not lead gen.

    To be honest, it won't hurt. In my opinion the more exposure the better.
    Plus, it's a good citation to have.

    forget Yelp and focus on Google my business. Build reviews there instead
