Yelp says: “The best reviews are passionate and personal. They offer a rich narrative, a wealth of detail, and a helpful tip or two for other consumers.” Here are some additional thoughts for conscientious reviewers:
  • Personal experience: We want to hear about your firsthand consumer experience, not what you heard from another individual. Try to tell your own story. Try not to resort to broad generalizations and conclusory allegations.
  • Accuracy: Make sure your review is factually correct. Feel free to air your opinions. Don’t exaggerate or misrepresent your experience. Do not take sides when it comes to factual disputes. We expect you to stand behind your review.
  • Review updates: Review updates should reflect a new experience or interaction with the business. Don’t tell the same story you’ve already told. If you’d like to add new insight to an old experience, you can edit your review within 30 days of posting it.”

Why Write Reviews

Ultimately, writing positive reviews helps others discover the places and individuals that are perfect for whatever they may be searching for. Here are a few tips:
  • Be informative and insightful: Be specific and relevant to the place you’re reviewing, and describe what other visitors are likely to experience. Highlight what makes the place special, and try to share something novel and new. Reviews should reveal the unique experiences that people and places offer.
  • Keep it real: Be authentic. Review your own experience, and explain why you liked or disliked a person, place, or thing. Try to be as accurate as possible, and include both the positive and negative aspects of your experience.
  • Be respectful: Not every experience with a place is going to be perfect. Sometimes you’ll want to share negative feedback. Even if you’re battling frustration, make sure your criticism is constructive. Business owners often use feedback to improve their offerings.
  • Reviews not General Commentary: At times certain reviews may become the subject of larger public debate or conversation due to recent news coverage or current events. While we respect and value your opinion, Local Reviews are not meant for social or political commentary. We think there are other forums that are more suited to those kinds of conversations, like blogs or social networks. Please write about your firsthand experience with the person, place, or thing and not general commentary on a business in relation to recent news.
  • Write with style: People will pay attention when you write thoughtful reviews. Keep them readable and avoid excessive capitalization or punctuation. Use good grammar, check your spelling, and avoid profanity. Choose the right length – a paragraph is great. Be creative and have fun!
