Last week, we learned about a partnership between Yahoo and Yelp, where Yelp will now provide listings for local businesses on Yahoo. Sounds good, right? Isn’t integration between platforms a good thing?
Not necessarily. The downside to the Yahoo/Yelp partnership is that when searching for a local business on Yahoo, years of old Yahoo reviews are now gone and replaced by Yelp reviews: Dan Tringale, a business owner from Massachusetts, saw 50 Yahoo reviews- reviews that had been built up over six years of hard work- disappear.
