Yelp Local Business Page – Monarch Rain Chains, Chino, CA

Looking at the new design, it seems Yelp have implemented “A picture is worth a thousand words” idea in new design and puts big images with a scrolling carousel above the fold instead of thumbnails and move local business page location map left of the page with complete address and web URL details.

Yelp has also highlights local business listing hours as well as other info on right side bar and local business page reviews, Because review highlights are so important and useful for Yelp user as well as local business owner point of view a. They’ve given them a huge upgrade, mining our review data to call out the best menu items, prices and important information like whether a bar is beer and wine only.

I like Yelp” New Layout for Business pages, Please share your view about Yelp new layout.

Yelp redesigned parts of its web UIBrad M (Product Manager Yelp) posted on Yelp official blog that they are going to new look and there brand new local business pages, Yelp -re-imagined, re-designed and re-engineered from the ground.

Yelp people working hard to make unique look of their website and local business pages, In the new look Yelp puts 6 big photographs in the front and center, instead of small thumbnails, most of business having good photos on their business pages and Yelp enhanced it now.

Brad also posted below screenshot of new look on blog with saying “Now a quick glans at a restaurant’s page can give you a feel for the dining experience, food quality and ambiance, all within mere seconds.”

Yelp new look till now under development and changes are not live yet, so I was able to capture a screenshot of the current page of “San Francisco Sushi Restaurant Tataki South” (before updates) above screenshot is the same business page, where you can  check and compare changes, I found following

  1. Business hours Information now more easier to see
  2. Review highlights moved “above the fold” with details
  3. Image  highlighted on “above the fold” instead of thumbnails
  4. Write a review | Add Photo| Share | Bookmark also moved above of images

Snapshot Yelp Local Business Listing Current Page

I like new look of yelp and found now page are more engaging and readable at a glance.

New look appears that the Rating distribution and trend charts have been removed from the page, which is not good from my point of view.
