In Business, Games, Apps, and OS by Ramon LopezLeave a Comment

That’s right! Yelp, the de facto online business directory for many — the yellow pages of the Internet, if you will — is now live in the Philippines, which means you can now mosey over to Yelp Philippines and read thousands of crowd-sourced reviews to find your next favorite restaurant or watering hole. Business owners, on the other hand, can look forward to a new way of promoting their establishments by tapping into a local community of Yelpers (read: Yelp users). Yelp can also provide them a means of gauging consumer interest online.

Yelp, the yellow pages of the Internet, if you will, is now live in the Philippines.

Since being founded in 2004, Yelp has grown exponentially, expanding its reach across Europe and Asia. Currently, there are Yelp communities in 32 international markets, including Singapore, Japan, and Hong Kong, among many others. Throughout the first quarter of 2015, the company’s site traffic from mobile devices fetched an average of 79 million unique visitors per month.

Yelp in the Philippines is available via desktop, mobile, and app (Android and iOS) in both English and Filipino.
