The main service of Yelp is reviews; currently there are over 52 million reviews on the site. Reviews are what users often look for when visiting Yelp: up to 44 percent of users regularly read these reviews. When a business maintains a good online reputation, it often translates to better visibility and name recognition.

The site offers a free business page that users can view and where they can leave reviews. Property owners can upload and display images of the property. For business transactions, Yelp offers “Yelp Deal” services that let property owners offer exclusive deals to potential tenants. In addition, Yelp has a mobile app that lets users access the services while on the go.
