About Yelp, Inc

Yelp is a website and mobile app that’s all about connecting people with great local businesses. Whether a doctor, dog groomer, food truck, or boutique hotel, we think a little insight into local consumers’ opinions can make all the difference in choosing the right business for you. In fact, Yelp was founded in 2004 when our CEO, Jeremy Stoppelman, was looking for a doctor and couldn’t find any helpful information online. By bringing word of mouth online, Yelp encourages local commerce and supports small business growth by helping consumers decide where to spend their hard-earned money.

Yelp makes money by selling advertising to local businesses, offering the opportunity to enhance their profile pages and increase their exposure to Yelpers by placing marked advertisements on relevant search result and competitor pages. We also sell display advertising and take a revenue share of Yelp Deals and Gift Certificates sold through our site.
