    Interesting that Yelp, perceived by many local search marketers as being a beneficiary of bias, are themselves complaining about what they see as Googles bias towards its own G+ content.

    Google is doing what anyone else would.

    Of fucking course google is going to be bias to their own products....

    In the Ninth US Court of Appeals, when Yelp was sued for anti-competitive behavior, the Court held that Yelp was not anti-competitive, and only engaged in hard core business tactics.

    Funny that Yelp, being the beneficiary of a Court ruling, would now complain about fairness.

    Why are they complaining? Do they want everyone to complain too?
