Yelp connects people with great local businesses. Our users have contributed approximately 121 million cumulative reviews of almost every type of local business, from restaurants, boutiques and salons to dentists, mechanics, plumbers and more. These reviews are written by people using Yelp to share their everyday local business experiences, giving voice to consumers and bringing “word of mouth” online. The information these reviews provide is valuable for consumers and businesses alike. Approximately 24 million unique mobile devices accessed Yelp via the Yelp app, approximately 73 million unique visitors visited Yelp via desktop computer and approximately 65 million unique visitors visited Yelp via mobile website on a monthly average basis during the fourth quarter of 2016. Businesses, both small and large, use our platform to engage with consumers at the critical moment when they are deciding where to spend their money. Our business revolves around three key constituencies: the contributors who write reviews, the consumers who read them and the local businesses that they describe. Yelp was founded in San Francisco in July 2004 and since then, Yelp has taken root in major metros across more than 30 countries.
