Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Yelp - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as qype.com

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Ok, ok, ok we know that’s not an excuse. We’ll have it back up-and-running for you shortly.

DNS resolution error
You've requested a page on a website (www.yelp.com) that is on the CloudFlare network. CloudFlare is currently unable to resolve your requested domain (www.yelp.com). There are two potential causes of this:

Most likely: if the owner just signed up for CloudFlare it can take a few minutes for the website's information to be distributed to our global network.
Less likely: something is wrong with this site's configuration. Usually this happens when accounts have been signed up with a partner organization (e.g., a hosting provider) and the provider's DNS fails.

YELP extorts businesses to pay for advertising, while allowing competition to right negative reviews... ha the competition can knock down your business in minutes and all you are left to do is beg for yelp to help while they tell you do NOT ask even your own customers for reviews. Yelp is an extortion racket that cant even keep its servers running.

Cant wait till one big law suit knocks yelp down forever after allowing businesses to be knocked down by competitions false negative reviews... Yelp will plummet, their IPO will cost investors millions do NOT invest in yelp it is the Titatantic of Web 2.0 a destin failure due to their practices of allowing anybody to post. If you go to a business you should have a confirm number that you were a customer, a patron, a client - their obvious ignoring of this fact clearly shows they are out for short term cash and going to allow investors to be taken. Yelp is a scam.
