Yahoo Partners with Yelp to Deliver Local Business Details to Users

Yahoo announced that it will now use Yelp to deliver local business details to users searching for information about a specific city in an attempt to give Google a run for its money. The financial terms of the deal have not been announced, but news of the partnership first leaked last month. Yelp reviews, ratings and photos will start to appear on the right hand panel of the search engine. The listings will also appear within Yahoo maps, for desktop, smartphone and tablet users in the U.S. Yelp stands to benefit from increased traffic and could generate better revenues, as well as helping its brand stand out by having its data featured on Yahoo. Yahoo's search market share started to slump after the company started relying on Microsoft technology to produce most of its search results. The partnership was intended to allow Yahoo to focus on providing other features for its search results.

Virginia Court of Appeals Rules against Yelp, Inc

After two losses in Virginia's courts, Yelp, Inc. has asked the Virginia Supreme Court to reverse the landmark decisions of Virginia's Circuit and Appellate courts and disregard state law, a move that could encourage the defamation of small businesses in the Commonwealth of Virginia. To defend its reputation against defamatory attacks by non-customers on Yelp, Hadeed Carpet Cleaning sought redress in Virginia's judicial system. Yelp was ordered by the Circuit Court for the City of Alexandria to identify a group of anonymous reviewers when Hadeed provided evidence explaining why Hadeed believes they never were customers of his businesses. After refusing to comply with the court order, Yelp was held in contempt of court by the Circuit Court and fined. Yelp appealed its contempt finding to the Court of Appeals of Virginia. On January 7, 2014, the Appellate Court affirmed the finding of civil contempt against the company. The company remains in contempt of court.
