    Do any of you know how I should go about creating multiple Yelp accounts? I plan on creating a lot of these for various purposes and wanted to know how I should go about doing so before I try it on my own..get sloppy...and F&*% it up. I see a ton of value in Yelp these days and this would be pretty useful if done intelligently.

    I also need a cl account for every city...How should I go about that?

    Google places?....I'm new to this one.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Most of time they hide fake reviews. You need to be master at first step.

    Yelp tracks your IP address, puts a cookie on your computer, and records your hardware configuration.

    Is this true?

    Is there no way to singlehandedly (perhaps with the use of proxies, perhaps with purchasing Yelp accounts from various sources) manipulate reviews for clients without getting caught and filtered by Yelp?

    Use different methods. If Yelp sees multiple reviews following a pattern, it will remove all your suspicious reviews.

    I've also recently learned that they can use things such as the fonts you have on your PC and the order they load in. This is one of the pieces of information that your user agent (that is, your browser self-identifies to the website with) provides.

    yelp is a pain in the but to deal with.

    I had them contact me about setting up a partner account and then i did an ad spend like 1500 a month with them.

    when asked why do these fake accounts pull up in ranking over real accounts they did not have an answer.

    Told them i could not spend that type a month with a company that will take a new listings and rank it above a company listing that has been on the site from the bigging and has over 100 reviews.

    they could not tell me why these new listings were out ranking in their search.

    First alot of the rules for posting on craig#$#!@ apply to yelp. I actually called yelp to bitch them out- you only get to talk to a receptionist that barely knows the name of the company.

    It helps to have a profile pic and someone else mentioned it helps to have a link to a facebook page. I believe since I know real genuine quality reviews get filtered- the only way is too make it up in quanity- some reviews will get filtered some won't- just like cl...

    I have gotten pretty good at the Yelp review process. I actually haven't had a filtered review in a while. The trick it to think like a first time Yelp user who is making an account and reviewing something. You may use an app on a phone, maybe an iPad while you're sitting at a coffee shop.

    So what do you guys think of creating a fb account, upoading a random person picture and start posting a review from a public wifi spot like starbucks from your smartphone internet explorer. Then cleaning up the cookies and cache, and restart the same process for other yelp accounts. Then after 10 other mixed reviews every couple of days for other businesses in the city, finally make a review for your business of choice.

    Also, would this solve the harware issue as let's say every iphone would be the same for yelp?

    Any thought?

    One thing me and a buddy of mine did was to start posting negative reviews with 5 stars and positive reviews with one star to each other accounts with no regards to IP or PC identification at all. What happens is YELP decides to filter ALL the reviews on that account and any further reviews made to that account get fikltered with 24 hours as well.. thought might be helpful if someone has a terrible rating with yelp and wants it gone...
