Yahoo serves up Yelp user reviews

Published on Mar 13, 2014 8:24 AM

SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Yahoo on Wednesday began serving up Yelp reviews in United States (US) search results as it sought to win users away from Google.

"We're thrilled to announce that we've partnered with Yelp," Yahoo product management senior director Anand Chandrasekaran said in a blog post.

Looking up businesses on smartphones, tablets or computers on Yahoo Search will trigger results that include Yelp user-generated reviews and ratings, according to Mr Chandrasekaran.

Yahoo last week said that it will stop letting people sign into its online services using credentials from rival Internet titans Facebook or Google.
