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

    Google and Yelp[​IMG] are in advanced acquisition negotiations, we’ve confirmed from multiple sources. And while the deal isn’t done, we’ve heard that it’s 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 it’s real numbers are more like 25 million monthly uniques.

    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 :biggrin:

    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.

    Whoever came up with lmgtfy is a genius...

    Let me google that for you
