Guiding consumers to businesses they feel good about
Business attributes on Yelp show services and amenities offered, as well as other details that are important to many consumers when selecting a business to patronize. These attributes help consumers find businesses that align with their values, as well as help them decide if they’re likely to feel comfortable and accepted at a particular business.
Frequently asked questions
How can a business indicate that they’re Asian-owned, Black-owned, Latinx-owned, LGBTQ-owned, veteran-owned or women-owned?
These business attributes are available to businesses in the U.S. and Canada (women-owned is available worldwide) and are easy to add to your Yelp page from the Yelp for Business app or website. Make sure you have claimed your page to seamlessly display any relevant attributes to your consumers.
How can consumers suggest changes to the “Amenities and More” section of a Yelp Page?
While businesses can set factual attributes from the Yelp for Business app or website, these can also be collected by user votes in the “Update the Community” section of a business’s Yelp Page. Factual attributes are verifiable things like “accepts credit cards” and “take-out available.” If an attribute is subjective, which can include things like “ambiance” and “noise level,” only Yelp users can vote on it, and it cannot be set by the business.
How does Yelp determine if a business is Asian-owned, Black-owned, Latinx-owned, LGBTQ-owned, veteran-owned or women-owned?
Businesses select these attributes themselves. We believe the decision to self-identify with any of these business attributes should rest solely with the business.
