Web 2.0 Assign. Week 3

So I just took look at  SEOmoz'.org Web 2.0  awards and noticed an application I use almost every time I am looking to eat a new restaurant. Yelp, listed under the guides and reviews category, recieved first place. I have used yelp numerous times and it has been a great tool to use. What I enjoy most about Yelp is not only can you get reviews of restaurants but one can also find almost all the information there is about the location (phone number, menu, directions, etc.) The other Web 2.0 applications are very similar in which one can find a ton of information about whatever one may be looking for. They are fantastic softwares, I porbably would have never tried as many places I have without this fun application. By the way, the reason I am able to use this application constantly is because I have it for free on my iphone. So I can see whats around me quickly and make my choices accordingly on the go. Plus, on my phone it will actually give you directions instantly to your desired location so you are able to find it efficiently. Web 2.0 applications of these kind are pretty sweet.  


  1. I really like yelp as well. I love the fact that you can read the menu before you even step in the door. It helps when you are not sure about a place you are visiting for the first time.

  2. Yelp is a great site, I downloaded it's application to my phone. It's great to find things to do in whatever you are and see what others think of it. I've used it when I've traveled to other cities to find good restaurants and bars.
