Help with my Yelp issue
GetHuman764311's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.
Yelp doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman764311 will need to dig through the advice provided by Yelp, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman764311 can let us know if they help or not.
The issue in GetHuman764311's own words
*. Trying to make sure that my event is published and searchable on Yelp. *. Trying to make a simple edit on the event. ... *. I've created an event on Yelp. And I thought I published it. I went to search the event on Yelp and it does NOT show up in the search results. Is there a waiting period or approval that an event must go through? If so can you tell me what steps are involved and how long that takes? **. I followed your directions on how to edit an event but it doesn't work. When I hi edit event it brings me back to your home page. I've tried it several times and the same issue comes up. Is something wrong with the page? Can I NOT edit the event? Any resolutions to this issue? **Look forward to finding closure on this.**Mahalo for your time.
I cannot use my time trying to solve issues that i think Yelp should have listed in the Yelp help desk. And it's extremely frustrating that I cannot talk to a real live person on the phone to help resolve this issue.
I know that I won't get a phone call. (Well, I get calls for my business page all the time asking me to start an advertising campaign.) Yelp for some reason apparently doesn't believe in speaking to a live support person. I'd like to get information on how to edit the event and how to make sure that it is live and published.
I've been a customer since ****. I write fair reviews. I search and use Yelp for other activities. I tell others about how great Yelp is and to use it to find new things to do. I really like Yelp, I really really do.
EDIT :**. I went to the support page and found how to edit. However when I hit the edit button it would only bring me back to the home page. I tried this * times. It never worked and I cannot edit the event to date.*PUBLISH :**. I completed the event and was thinking it was published and up and searchable. It does not show up on the search.**. I had another friend try the same thing on his computer and it did not show up in his search.**. I spoke with a MAC specialist at APPLE who told me to contact Yelp.**. I spoke with technical staff at the MAC store here in town. They said I need to contact Yelp.**. I did a GOOGLE search to find an answer to the issues. NOTHING came up as to how to fix the issue.**. I tried a BING search. NOTHING**. I tried a search on SAFARI browser. NOTHING**. I called the professor at the University here in town. He suggested that I speak with Yelp to resolve the issue.**. I put the question out to friends on all my social media accounts. Feedback was that Yelp doesn't have a phone where you can speak to someone live. I was told "Good Luck!" hahah. More than three people laughed at me. I was embarrassed and belittled.
