Something better heard on the radio than downloaded. Like her previous single, the smash "My Life Would Suck without You," this song is rock-based pop with plenty of guitars backing up Kelly's driving vocals.
I know I'm late but this pop-rock song is a keeper. It starts off kinda basic but once the chorus comes in the guitars go crazy in such a good way. It will have you putting this song on repeat unless you over-listen to the radio, for it plays on it sometimes. Like I said the strongest part about this song is its chorus. Thanks goodness for this song. It felt like forever since 's My December. One person found this helpful. I love this song. I feel as though it's a great song even if only about half the American population can relate to it.
I love the song, it's empowering vibe, the fast pace making it great for running to, and that it's sung by Kelly Clarkson. Katy Perry has a version of this song - doesn't suit her voice nearly as well as it suits Kelly Clarkson. There is no question about why Kelly Clarkson hasn't really been able to shine in her songs lately. They all have felt exactly the same on top of each other. She hasn't been able to get herself seperated from her American Idol image very well.
Her latest single doesn't seem to really shine that brightly to my ears. It really isn't a great song after a few times, and feels like it has lost its luster very quickly. There have been reports of review spam networks covering thousands of reviews. Usually, they are fairly easy to detect by looking at their accounts.
If they are reviewing a motorhome manufacturer in Vancouver, a bar in New York, and an Ice Cream Shop in London on the same day, they are probably fake accounts. They often will have lots of accounts with just stars and no description on sites like Google or they will have the same sounding reviews every place. They handle my service good. I will back for them for later use. Always report review spam, but make sure you check for TOS violations in their reviews first.

Yelp no longer allows you to flag a review if the reason you give for flagging it is that the review is false or untrue. Why does Yelp give unquestioned credibility to bad reviews, but good review are treated with skepticism by there filters.
Business owners who fall victim to false and defamatory reviewers will find that yelp has a def ear for them. Yelp is severely flawed and does not protect businesses or paying customers and will talk you in circles about their algorithms and how there system operates.
As previously stated Yelp seems to only show negative emails but the ones that are positive, they query. The validity of Yelp is certainly called into question. If the reviews on this website are negative what about those many positive review listed on Yellowpages? You are correct, Yelp does not care if a review is factual or not. It does seem to be geared toward hiding more positive than negative reviews. Without a much larger sample size, we have no way to prove that at this point.
Several class action law suits have failed to win against yelp since they cannot prove that Yelp is manually changing reviews in exchange for advertising revenue. In our experience, reviewers who are local, have established profiles with other reviews of businesses in the same area and talk about a realistic experience do seem to get posted more often.
There are very few TOS violations you can use to try to have them removed. That said, asking happy customers to review you online consistently can have an effect on your reviews. Getting a consistent flow of positive reviews will galvanize your reputation against the negative ones.
If you are having an issue with fake reviews, I suggest that you flag them and have others do the same. Matt, do you have any source or any other info about the full name of the employee for TOS removal? Thank you so much for your post and for working through the comments section. Finally found something useful to read and implement after hours of searching.
I am really frustrated with the fake reviews posted by my competitor next door I know it because he told me so and that is why I had to consult an ORM company to work in the same direction. Their work was undoubtedly satisfactory and they are looking for suppressing more in future. But these easy to follow steps have nailed it, so I would do it on my own from now onwards. The ORM company may look into other matters, but I will take this matter in my own hands.
Glad we could help. We are working on a book called Help with Yelp right now also. I have a old customer that has literally put me out of business. She has posted a false review about me claiming I am a felon I have my voters registration card and have served on a jury.
That I an a con man And that I am not a professional painter. This liar has put me out of business with false information about me. Yelp wont publish any positive reviews from legitimate customers of which I have a lot. Its put me in bankruptcy with the assistance of Lone Star Legal Aid. Any lawyers out there have any defamation of character experience?
Sorry for the slow reply. I hate to hear those types of stories where people are being bullied by others through Yelp or any service. I do have some suggestions for you. I would consider going to your local Chamber of Commerce or networking group and make some friends and once you know them ask them to review your business.
Sometimes having other local business people review you can help a lot. Especially if they can speak to your integrity. Every happy customer you have, ask them if they have ever reviewed anyone on Yelp and ask them to review you if they were happy with your service. You need reviews by people who have existing reviews already, because those are more likely to be kept toward your rating.
Try to contact the negative reviewers if you know them and find a way to get things square with them if at all possible so that they will remove their damaging reviews.
When large corporations mistreat clients or customers they should be put on public display. I know that for a fact. I do agree Roseanna. Many of these reviews will not be filtered and also will not be able to be removed. For the most part, those reviews will be safe from removal. It seems like the competition can do what they want if they have enough money. I really think we will need an alternative to Yelp in the future.
I got my first bad 1 star review in over 10 years in business and it is on Yelp. I document every VM that comes in and his name never is not in my records dating back to Dec and he complained in March What do you do with something like that? I never had any call, VM or interaction with this guy.
I had the exact same experience! Please make sure your contributions are relevant and appropriate to the forum. It is a true mafia. I am absolutely sick of this. If others want to start filing lawsuits I will also act as a class attorney if people are interested.
Yelp is destroying businesses with reckless abandonment. This article has been informal. What would be considered my best approach on this? I feels if I flag all 3 reviews that the system will pick up on it and decline removal of any reviews based on too many reviews being flagged.
Please share any thoughts or things things I can do. Hi,I have a home based child care,and is licensed since ,never a problem of any kind. Back in I had a very particular parent. To make a long story short I can not,and I will not contact her to remove her review from Yelp. I did contact Yelp regarding 5 gorgeous reviews that I have hidden. Can you help me? Look for Terms of Service violations in their review. You can also have several other people flag the same review and say that it is fake.
Lastly, make sure your happy customers are reviewing you, especially ones that have used Yelp before or use it regularly. If your business is a residence, or at the incorrect address or something like that, you can ask to have it removed.
Also if the name is incorrect. A court ruling a couple years ago basically said Yelp can publish whatever they want on their website. I say get as many positive reviews as you can and use it as a tool to your advantage is usually the best route to take. There are also a lot of great comments. A lot of companies knee jerk reaction is to spend thousands on reputation management services when the best way to fight bad reviews is to drowned them out with as many positive reviews as possible.
Email everyone of your customers on an ongoing basis and kindly ask them to give you a positive. Link to the platform you want them to leave the review on. Make it as easy as possible. She made remarks that are untrue. Unfortunately, something being untrue is not legal grounds for getting it removed from a review website. And as a business owner I leave certain ones that are legit negative and reply back. But there are those that are completely false either written by a competitor or ex employee!
I understand your frustration, but the data actually shows that the large majority of reviews are real. However, we are providing this guide because we feel it is unfair when businesses are targeted by ex-employees, ex-spouses, competitors, or even people just reviewing the wrong business. Use our steps here to try to get those reviews removed and if you feel you are being illegally targeted or threatened by a competitor for money, etc.
How about just personal relationships for starters. The data on reviews being real versus fake was studied a number of ways, depending which studies you look at. The most common way is to see which reviews were reported as fake versus not reported at all. Can you better explain what you meant by: If you are doing business out of your residence then Yelp should remove you from their database? And if someone might say you were stomping around in their garage when evidently they may have been making fun of a disability,…Is that a TOS Violation?
All my thanks for your prompt response…M. What I am talking about is how Yelp will not remove your business if you ask them to remove it from their index, except in certain cases. One of these cases is if your business listing on Yelp is listed at a residential address.
