    Native Reviews on Yahoo Local

    When was the last time reviews could be left directly on Yahoo Local listings? I found some on a listing as late as July and August of 2016, and that seemed more recent that I'd expect. We all know about the partnership Yahoo made with Yelp in 2014 to use their review content, but I wasn't sure it was even still possible to leave a review as late as last year. I certainly don't see an option to do so anymore, even when signed in to a Yahoo account.

    [And yes, insert obligatory joke about the obsolescence of Yahoo here].

    Re: Native Reviews on Yahoo Local

    Very interested to hear the answer to this.

    Also, are you sure they are Yahoo reviews and not review sourced elsewhere besides Yelp?

    Could you share the link to those profiles with the recent reviews?

    I initially thought this was the case, but wasn't able to find the review source. There's a chance it may not exist anymore (the review OR the source).

    A couple listings with "recent" reviews:
    https://local.yahoo.com/info-9900122...y-philadelphia

    https://local.yahoo.com/info-6023277...y-law-st-louis

    I would think reviews from a non-Yahoo source would indicate where they are from, like Yelp, or in the case of this example, TripAdvisor:
    https://local.yahoo.com/info-9901646...italy-new-york

    But maybe there are some that would not ...

    1st review is very interesting. The same review is also on their Birdeye profile and on their Patientconnect profile.

    2nd review is from Yellowpages it looks like.

    3rd review is from Yelp.

    The other reviews are from "A Yahoo Local User" but date back to 2012.

    For https://local.yahoo.com/info-9900122...y-philadelphia though, that is interesting.

    I can't find sources for almost all of their recent reviews. That means they're either being added on Yahoo or being added by a private source. I'd guess the latter.

    I wonder because of Yahoo's relationship with Yext if Yext is able to direct submit reviews through their review program now? I wonder who else might be partners with them if this is true?
