    CityGuidePal - Anyone Familiar with This Directory?

    【City Guide Pal】-Find Nearby Businesses And Address Side Of Things

    I had a client ask me about this directory. Does anyone have any experiences or knowledge about it?

    Thanks!

    Re: CityGuidePal - Anyone Familiar with This Directory?

    They seem to be sourcing review data heavily by Yelp, and I am relatively sure this is not with Yelp's consent. Based on the English used across the site (other than in reviews), I guessed India as mother of the site, but then I noticed this in the About Us page:

    "Founded in April 2013,CityGuidePal.Com was one of the first websites to provide business reviews written by independent consumers in China."

    I had personally never heard of them till I saw your post.
