Yelp is a website that allows you to review almost every local service. This includes restaurants, bars, doctors, dentists, spas, hotels, pet stores, real estate agents, etc. Today Yelp has launched in Australia. Yelp will focus initially on Melbourne and Sydney and will expand to other cities from there. You can visit the Australian version of Yelp at Yelp.com.au.
“It’s easy to forget how much of an impact local businesses have on our day-to-day lives. Be it an auto mechanic, dentist, hair stylist or dry cleaner, we rely on them to help make life easier and more colorful,” stated Yelp CEO and co-founder Jeremy Stoppelman. “The most interesting finding for us has been that, regardless of geographic boundaries, people seem to have this altruistic desire to share their great local business experiences with others. We look forward to seeing what Aussies think of the site.”
