How to Delete a Yelp Business Profile


Yelp is a website designed to link businesses with customers through social networking and business reviews. When you sign up for a Yelp business profile, your business is given a searchable online page on Yelp's site, and you can submit descriptive information and images about your company. Customers who patronize your business can use your Yelp page to post reviews and rate services. If you've closed your business or you're finding that Yelp isn't attracting the extra customers you hoped it would, you can request that Yelp remove your business profile from the site.

  • Enter your email address and password. You are returned to the contact page after you log in.

  • Click on the drop-down box and select "Business Owner Help" as your topic.
