    Hey guys.

    I recently came across some cool SMB's with awesome owners, but had some crazy customers that gave them terrible yelp reviews. My first thought was to create a bot to publish new positive reviews to help push down the negative ones. But never really optimized yelp before. Anyone have experience in this? Or know of a more efficient (and scalable) way to do this?

    It is not easy with Yelp as it is with others. They really built a powerful Algo, and they rather have a filtered review than a none authentic one.

    I have been researching this. No way a BOT can game Yelp. Best thing to do is slowly trade as you go...but dont over do it.

    Jack, is it possible to create a bot but if you don't plan to manage thousands of accounts you better do semi auto scripting...
