    Google to acquire Yelp?

    Google In Discussions To Acquire Yelp For A Half Billion Dollars Or More

    Google and Yelp are in advanced acquisition negotiations, weve confirmed from multiple sources. And while the deal isnt done, weve heard that its very likely to close. The price is supposedly at least $500 million. Yelp was founded in 2004 as a way to let users leave reviews on local businesses. Comscore puts worldwide traffic at nearly 9 million monthly unique visitors, and it has been growing fast the company says its real numbers are more like 25 million monthly uniques.

    What is Yelp?

    A site where users can post reviews of restaurants, etc.

    As a side note ( and please, don't take this personally because your not the only one that does this ), clearly your on a computer that has access to the internet. This means that you have access to Google, the sum of all human knowledge. If you have a question ( like 'What is Yelp?' ), kindly just Google it and save yourself some time.

    Again, I mean no offense. Just a pet peeve of mine

    Mixed Feelings About This News

    I have mixed feelings about this news. If it does go through, I hope Google doesn't make any drastic changes. I have been using and reviewing on Yelp.com from the beginning.

    I hope it all works out for the better.

    Better yet, use Yahoo to look up what Yelp is...and oh well. I prefer Where over Yelp anyway...even though I rarely use either.

    I'm curious to see what Google can do with their data. The Yelp app is a bit deficient on several platforms -- hopefully they'll do something about that if it goes through.
