Setting up your page is just filling out a couple of online forms and answering an automated call for verification. So make sure all necessary information that you want your clients to know is on your Yelp Page. You can upload photos, place a link to your website and ensure that your contact information, store hours, and other business information are up to date; otherwise Yelp will move on to a competitor and place it better in the search results because they provide more detailed information on what the site visitors need.
