    Is there a chance that the person replying to the reviews is actually disgruntled former employee that still has access to the Yelp account?

    There's more than one reason I registered and came up with the idea for CustomerRater.com many, many, years ago. It's still a work in progress but one day you will see it come alive and it seeks to add a new layer to the market: Consumer Grading

    A few Canadian girls thought up a similar idea after I did, but you cannot use a rating system to slam people - like many people do to us. You avoid terms like IDIOT, LOSER, ASSHOLE and build something along the lines of how you grade beef. You can consume all beef but some is PREMIUM and some are NOT. It says right on the label. You either are worthy of consumption or you are not.

    The goal is to build a huge database on everyone and use the FB API.

    You can say anything to a business or about them whether you had a bad experience of not, but all that data is about to flow the other direction.

    Oh man.... I've seen a bunch of that go on and to be fair not just dealerships. You gotta' have a closure strategy releasing angry employees or contactors. OUCH!

    They got a Consumer Alert report lmfao. Dont leave fake reviews under the same computer folks. Also don't hire someone that thinks you can talk to your customers that leave negative feedback like trash. I can't stand this new "Everything I dont like is fake" fuckery.

    TO: Prime Response Dealers

    FROM: Prime Response Product Team

    DATE: November 8th, 2017

    SUBJECT: Yelp

    To our valued dealerships,

    Today we received a notification from Yelp stating that reputation management systems are, “putting our clients’ online reputation at risk by soliciting reviews on their behalf”. Yelp views this solicitation for reviews as an “illicit tactic” and states that it violates their policies. While we disagree with their stance, we want to be transparent and deliver this message to our dealership community.

    This recent policy statement and “shift in thinking” follow the recent exclusion of Yelp reviews from two major domestic OEM sponsored reputation management programs.

    In an effort to protect you, our dealers, from any demotion in Yelp search results, we are recommending the following action.

    • The removal of Yelp from any service redirects and/or sales redirects that you may have set up today.
    • The removal of Yelp from any email asking for customer reviews.
    Finally as a service to you, our valued dealers, we recommend to continue to track Yelp so that you can be aware of any review activity and keep whatever alert notifications you have already set up.

    Below are some key links that were provided as part of Yelp’s email.

    https://www.yelpblog.com/2017/11/businesses-not-work-review-solicitation-companies
    https://www.yelp-support.com/article/Don-t-Ask-for-Reviews
    https://www.yelp-support.com/article/What-is-Yelp-s-review-solicitation-penalty

    Yelp’s support number is: (877) 767-9357.
