Yelp Reviews Are So 1980 The Future Is Google

Yelp Reviews are so 80’s Google is the Future says Fort Lauderdale Locksmith Free My Lock about Locksmith Reviews

80s CollageDo you recognize the faces above?  Of course you do!!  What once was part of your daily life has been replaced by the more recent bands and trends.  Compare the 80s to Locksmith Review Listings:  When Locksmith Fort Lauderdale Free My Lock explores the options for 2015 ….the androgynous character chooses Google!


It is an integrated system that doesn’t require too many users to set up profiles or passwords, since they all usually have a Gmail Account.  The same is happening in social media – where it was once popular to YELP for business advice, the use of this service is comparable to the 80’s trends.  If you are not in San Francisco or Boston, and not looking for food, chances are you don’t use Yelp often….

YELP For Sale

On May 7th, 2015: The Wall Street Journal reported that consumer review website Yelp was seeking a buyer. This news arrives five years after Google was in talks for the company, offered a reported $500 million, and didn’t close the deal….Instead, Google acquired Zagat, for 1/4 of the price which goes to show that the value in Yelp was in food & they were at a premium price. From Yelp’s business review…Q2 2015 investor presentation…12% of Home & Local Services are rated by consumers.Screen Shot 2015-10-18 at 7.18.29 PMHow much is local service vs home service & what cities do Yelper’s Yelp in?  This information is not known and when businesses are approached by Yelp to purchase their $500 – $1000/month service, it is a hard decision for a business to make.  The advertising Yelp provides does add value, but the price tag is high.  Out of all the directories, YELP is #1, but again it is only a directory, with an added feature of user reviews.

Reviews are Part of Small Business Advertising

Reviews are all part of small business advertising, and the question is who will control the reviews?  With 90% of users searching Google – my bet is eventually Google will be the dominant force for all reviews.  All in or nothing – that’s the motto Fort Lauderdale Locksmith Free My Lock is going with when it comes to reviews. Our customers have a chance to rate us on our Google Plus Profile. We are focused on only one rating tool & even though Yelp seems to dominate the local listings right now, we believe change is on the way for this little locksmith company in Fort Lauderdale.
