Whoa Mayhem, I'm sure this wasn't a racial slur, Yago was extending a long running joke around here about his command of the Spanglish language.A racial slur coming from a Spaniard. I am not here to take your business boss no need to fret.
You are talking to numbers PEOPLE. People who understand that often times you have to read between the numbers and question everything about the numbers to fully understand them. I am not understanding the comparison of Google and Yelp in this particular matter. Google is first and foremost a search engine. So, any comparison is inflated because those numbers do not only represent review traffic. And Yelp got this lovely traffic bump from it's new boyfriend (Apple) that just recently broke up with Google.I thought I was talking to numbers guys? More customers are not searching the BBB if they are it's based on cause and affect. There's the old marketing saying "Customers don't know what they want, that's why we have to tell them".
BBB is growing?

yelp.com Daily Visitors 92,799,000
BBB Daily Visitors: 266,700
These companies are popping up all over the place. They often outsource this stuff to countries like the Philippines or India which makes sense when you read the weird syntax of the text. They aren't really too slick about posting either. I've seen blatant manipulation where a business won't have any reviews for months and then all of a sudden they get 10-20 in the span of 2 days.I don't know how places like this;
Buy Online Reviews
can get away with this. They specifically mention posting reviews on cars.com, dealerrater.com, and edmunds.com. They say they submit only your offline reviews but with out a system to verify if they are real. The company I work for his hurting and wants to stay ethical but it's very hard when the competition is playing dirty.
I hope I'm wrong, and if so I will absolutely apologize, but... this sure looks fishy to me.Well i decided if my closest competitor was going to do it so would I. I got 30 reviews now all 4 - 5 stars and my phone is ringing off the hook again. I got passed it morally by having the ef7 guys post my actual customer reviews online and the simple fact I gotta keep the lights on. I regretted doing it at first as I thought I cross some sort imaginary line. . . I got over it on the way to the bank
