1 Read ratings and reviews. Star ratings provide "at-a-glance" information based on a 1 to 5 star scale while written reviews offer details to help you make a more informed decision. You can read professionally written editorial reviews or reviews written by locals like you. Access reviews and ratings from the details page of each business or service.

2 Write reviews and rate businesses you've used. Voice your opinion of the new Italian restaurant you just tried. Rate it and everyone will know how you felt. Write a review and everyone will know why you felt that way. It's easy. From the search results page, click directly on the "Rate this" link or click on the business you want to rate and then use the rating stars under the Ratings area at the top of the businesses' details page. After you've submitted a rating, you can write a review by clicking on the "write a review" link. By the way, you may rate a business and choose not to review it or you could choose to return and write a review at a later date. more

Guidelines for writing a review

Be objective and truthful. Tell us how you really feel and why. Useful reviews are detailed and specific, and give the reader a feel for your experience. Think about what kind of information you want when you ask a friend or coworker to recommend a restaurant, service, activity, or business. Here are some of the kinds of questions you might want to answer in your review:

  • Did the experience meet or exceed your expectations? Are you planning to go back soon?
  • How did this store compare to other, similar businesses in your area? Do you feel like you got what you paid for?
  • What did you like or dislike? If you had to wait in line, was it worth it?
  • Would you recommend this to your friends? Your parents? Your boss?

Stay "on topic".Present facts, not fluff. Was your soup lukewarm? Were the towels in the gym clean? Did the cashier smile and say thank you? Was the salesperson well-informed and helpful? Did the contractor finish ahead of schedule? Did the roof really stop leaking? Did the delivery arrive on time? Did the performance knock your socks off?

Try to keep it short.Write short sentences that stick to the point and focus on highlights of your experience. The recommended length for a local review is from 100 to 250 words.


Don'tspoil it for others. Don't abuse the service. Reviews should not harass, abuse, or threaten another's personal safety or property, make false statements, defame, impersonate someone else, contain profanity, sexually explicit, illegal or otherwise objectionable content, as determined by Yahoo! in its sole discretion.

Don't post personal information. Never assume that you are completely anonymous and cannot be identified by your posts. Reviews should not include personal information, such as email addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers or credit card numbers belonging to you or others.

Don't post multiple or commercial reviews. Reviews should not include multiple posts by the same user or posts that have spam, commercial or advertising content or links.

Don't copy or otherwise infringe others' material, trademarks or other intellectual property. Reviews should include your own, original thoughts. We want to hear from you!

Don't upload HTML, viruses, or other malicious code. Reviews are for text only comments. Please help to protect the Yahoo! network.

Reviews are for Yahoo! Local users only. Our rating system is for Yahoo! Local users to help other Yahoo! Local users. Businesses listed in Yahoo! Local are not allowed to post reviews about themselves or other listed businesses.

In 1957 the respected BBC news show Panorama announced that thanks to a very mild winter and the virtual elimination of the dreaded spaghetti weevil, Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop. It accompanied this announcement with footage of Swiss peasants pulling strands of spaghetti down from trees.
