Small business owners who want to be discovered in their local area know the importance of an online business presence. Consumers increasingly turn to online reviews when using the internet to research local businesses. Many trust online reviews just as much as personal recommendations. (How else do you choose a restaurant while traveling?)
A Yelp listing helps small businesses reach local customers and visitors by providing contact information, as well as a platform to interact with customers who leave reviews.

Introducing the GoDaddy GoCentral Yelp Business Listing feature
We’re happy to announce that GoCentral Website Builder now offers an easier way for small business owners to establish and manage their Yelp Business Listing.
Currently, GoCentral is the only website builder tool that allows users to create and manage their Yelp listing at no extra charge and without complicated add-ons.
Who’s it for?
Whether you’re a restaurant owner, an automobile repair technician, or a painter, we know your plate is full (or overflowing). If you’re looking for an easy way to get your business name out there and attract new local customers, the GoCentral Yelp Business Listing feature is for you.
What problem does it solve?
We recognize that small business owners are busy, passionate individuals looking to provide their customers with the best possible products, services and experiences.

How does it work?
