It’s with great pride that I am pleased to share some very exciting news. We’ve announced that we have agreed to be acquired by Yelp.
There is no question that Yelp has been a leading force in the local business reviews space for years. They have built an international product and brand that has generated north of 30 million reviews; a site that more than 78 million monthly unique visitors seek when looking for a great local business.
Through the hard work of our employees and our users, more than two million reviews of local businesses have been contributed to our site and we are now seeing more than 15 million monthly unique visitors.
Our users reviews and opinions will be amplified as we become part of a much bigger and broader platform.
Today marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Qype.
On behalf of our team here, we are thrilled that our continued hard work will play a significant role in accelerating Yelp’s leadership position in the world of local business recommendations.
Ian Brotherston – CEO, Qype
