Business hours and addresses are changing, but they are not always updated on Yelp by business owners for the rest of us. It's a nuisance to show when a company is closed or given the wrong address. That's why the company, the Customer, allows us to update company information through the Yelp mobile app on iOS and Android. If the owner does not, someone has to.
If you find that information about a bar, restaurant, doctor's office, household cleaner, grocery, or other store is outdated or incorrect, use Yelp's edit feature. Fix bugs for you and anyone else otherwise would follow false information. There is a business-only Yelp app, but only a small percentage of companies are likely to use it, so it's up to us.
You can edit name, category, address, map location, opening hours, phone, website and menu. In return for your good deeds, Yelping will be a better experience for everyone.
: Access the Business Listing Editor
On the Yelp business entry where you want to update or correct the information, top right, tap the vertical or horizontal ellipse (•••), the "More Options" menu, and select "Edit Business." Alternatively, you can scroll down the business listing, tap More Info, and click Edit or the pencil icon in the top right corner.
You can name , Category, address, map location, hours and phone number edit, website and menu URL, and if the company is permanently closed or if the listing is duplicated. More information about completing each section can be found below in the screenshots.
Enable or disable this setting if the location is permanently closed. When the store is open, leave this setting alone. Do not turn it on when the company is temporarily closed, for example because there is construction, fumigation or some other temporary cause. Temporary closures should only be mentioned in the Notes section at the bottom of Edit Business .
If you have seen multiple entries from the same company, go to the Duplicate Business? Page. Frame. You may not know which page is official, but fewer reviews and incomplete or incorrect information may indicate that the entry should be reported. Remember that this applies to the same site, not the other sites of the company, even if they have the same name as McDonald's.
Enter the full name of the company. Avoid specifying business numbers, as these are not part of the company's official name, and not how customers relate to the location. Also omit keywords, tag lines, neighborhoods, and other information available elsewhere in the list. For example, the address helps determine the neighborhood, and the category is essentially the same as the keywords.
When you tap the map, you can choose where the location is, if it is wrong. Yelp uses the standard map app to find a building for an address, and you'd be surprised how many times it could be wrong. Move the map until the pin mark is exactly where the company's building is located.
If you move the pin in the map, the address does not change automatically because you only set the map location for the address already specified. If the address is wrong, edit it first before messing it up with the card, as you'll have to check it again anyway. To do this, tap on the address below the map. You can either enter the address manually or fill it in automatically by tapping "Fill with current location", which will use the phone's GPS to determine where you are.
Note some business locations. If there is no exact address for a business, it may be because it is a private address for a side job, such as a do-it-yourself, pet sitter or photographer. Yelp requires only a postal code or service area for these locations. These small businesses may not want everyone to know their home address. If you know the ZIP number, just use that.
