Does Yelp Dominate Google’s Local Web Results?

A common issue We have noticed here at Softline Solutions with the Google results are the number of Yelp results a Google search can return for a local type of keyword phrase.

It has been going on for well over a year.

One webmaster shared an example of a horrible Yelp listing in Google, in the Black Hat Forums.That Webmaster Is Our SEO Tech.

He said, you should take a look at the search results for [haircut santa monica] and 10 ten results on the web site were from Yelp. Pretty amazing.
