As we mentioned in our most recent blog post, the deals Yelp recently made with both Yahoo! and Yellow Pages to merge their review site listings may have an impact on your SEO.
The fact that both Yahoo! and Yellow Pages seem to be placing less emphasis on being regarded as reputable review sites (and instead relying on Yelp’s expertise), means that your presence on a variety of different review sites becomes even more important. We find that being listed on the review sites that are more tailored to the industry you are in may be one of the keys to boosting your SEO. For example, making sure you’re listed on Cars.com if you’re a car dealership or Avvo.com if you’re a lawyer.
