By the Numbers: 40 Amazing Yelp Statistics

yelp logoBegun almost 10 years, ago, Yelp has stuck pretty well to its roots as a business recommendation network, while adding a number of social and mobile elements along the way.

So how big has Yelp become? In our latest digital statistics post, we spotlight a bunch of interesting Yelp statistics.

Here are a few facts and figures about Yelp’s visitors, reviews, mobile usage and more. As always, we’ll be adding and updating semi-regularly as more statistics become available.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these stats come from Yelp’s own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100% accurate.
