Yahoo No Longer Showing Yelp Reviews
It appears that Yahoo is no longer serving up Yelp reviews. Drop maps, change their name and poof. Your old Yahoo reviews are back.

Whoa. Nice find, Mike.
Of course, no business owners in their right mind will make Yahoo reviews a priority (not that most did before). Yahoo threw away their trust last year. Now he only people who will take part are business owners who will review their own businesses to shore up their average ratings – in stasis for the last 16 months.
I wonder whether Yelp’s dysfunction played any role in this, too.
My bet is they pushed an update and accidentally commented out the Yelp reviews. They’ll probably be back in two weeks.
@Andrew (and all)
I noticed after I posted this that not all Yelp reviews are gone. So it could be as you say and they will return… with the lights out its hard to know if they are coming, going or if Yelp is just all screwed up… or some combination there of.
What is Marissa doing over there?
Is Yahoo Local even a player anymore?
This isn’t great news for Yelp! Along with the double digit stock drop, they need to turn it up a notch. Just another great example of why Yelp should sell in 2016.
Yeah I just checked a few clients and still see their Yelp reviews on Yahoo.
Maybe Yahoo is actually testing changes and gauging reactions before committing to them. Or someone spilled coffee on their keyboard.
I’m going with the keyboard on this one.
Yes I see several with the Yelp reviews and Barbara got hers back as well.
seems to be the case here
