Y is for Yelp


Help, Yelp!
©2011 Susan Noyes Anderson

I need Yelp!
I surely do.
For shopping help,
Yelp sees me through...
friends steering friends
by word of mouth!
Who's bucking trends?
Who's going south?

What eateries
outshine them all?
Which doc for me?
Whom should I call?
She cuts with flair.
He styles with ease.
Can you compare
these for me, please?

It's all on Yelp
in black and white.
When you need help,
Yelp steers you right.
So lets be minions.
Spread the news!
Ya need opinions?
Yelp reviews!

(and then you choose)

=)

In response to several questions, yes it IS real. Yelp.com.

Grandma Honey said...

So is YELP real? The way you describe it, sounds like something I would really like.

Grandma Honey said...

I just answered my own question by way of google, and found our city. So good to know about this site so I bookmarked it. I also was surprised at how many restaurants we have that I had never heard of before!

I love Yelp - we've found so many good restaurants that way. Haven't tried it yet for anything else, but maybe i should! It's a great little app to have when you're traveling.

I haven't tried it yet but I see others posting on it from FB.

I had a family dog that loved to yelp. This is such a fun word to say.

Must be a western thing? We have Angie's List. Yelp must be the same kind of service as Angie's List. Actual people rating everything. I like it! If I buy online I always read the reviews.~Ames

Cute.

Great poem! Gotta be careful with Yelp and other such review sites though. I have a friend who is a small business owner and a customer who was being a jerk got mad and went home and wrote a rotten Yelp review. Now she'll never get her perfect rating back and it's because of someone who made unreasonable demands for services not offered. Satisfied people don't usually write reviews - only angry ones - and these businesses are people's livelihoods.

Brian Miller said...

yelp? did they pay you for this...ha...they should...ok, will check it out...

Darlene said...

I agree with Brian, they should pay you for this. It would be great for their advertising. Of course I have never heard of them, but will check it out. Maybe they just don't advertise. At any rate, I loved the poem.

Pondside said...

I've never heard of this - but it sounds like a great idea. So does the idea that Yelp should give you an honorarium for the advertising!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

If anyone need Yelp in their life right now its me. lol
Great post honey and writing
Love ya

My kiddles and hubby use YELP all the time, but I usually don't think of it. Now it sounds so cool to use it that I'll have to oblige

Karen Sue said...

never did a yelp, but perhaps I'm going to have to give it a try

Kerri said...

I never heard of yelp...but now I want to check it out! You should submit your catchy poem to yelp...you never know what they might do!

rory said...

great blog! I like it! :)

Farmer's Wyfe said...

Never heard of it...GOOD to know!! :)

Caroline said...

How cool! I will have to check it out! And your poem is so clever. You could be a jingle writer!

Jenny said...

Sue! You totally need to send this into yelp. This was fabulous.

I rarely use it, although I often remind myself to do it!

This was super amazing...

Loved it!
