If you put up a sign in your yard presenting criminal accusations as fact about your neighbor it is called libel. Do it on Yelp and it is called a review.
If negative reviews on Yelp have gotten you down, unfortunately, there is not a lot you can do about it on Yelp itself. Yelp continues to allow bad, and even unfair reviews on business profiles and refuses to let business owners opt out.
But there are many things you can do to counter their effects -- and paying for Yelp's advertising services is not one of them. From documenting your Yelp profile to branding yourself on Google HotPot (Google's equivalent to Yelp), to deciding whether or not to hire a lawyer, here are tips to help you fight back against bad reviews on Yelp.
