INFOGRAPHIC: Yelp Hits 20 Million Reviews

Yelp has hit a major new milestone with the news that the social reviews service now has more than 20 million reviews. To celebrate the occasion, the company has put together an infographic filled with all kinds of sweet stats.
The infographic shows a “heat map” displaying which areas of the U.S. are responsible for the highest number of reviews. Bi-Rite Creamery in Yelp’s home city of San Francisco is the most-reviewed business with 3,837 reviews. Shake Shack in New York City, meanwhile, is the most reviewed burger joint with 2,201 reviews. Joan’s on Third, a bakery in Los Angeles, holds the distinction of the business that received the 20-millionth review after a Yelper named Joseph S. gave the company 5 stars.

Yelp also included a graph that shows the company’s growth since it was founded in 2004. The growth is such that the number of reviews on the service has doubled in just 16 months. Kim N. has been identified as the most prolific Yelper, with 4,150 reviews to date, while Yelpers have written more than 2.2 billion words on Yelp.
