Yelp Local Reviews To Feature On Bing [latimes.com]
Local reviews site Yelp will begin featuring content -- including review snippets and photos -- on Microsoft Bing Local search pages.

San Francisco-based Yelp said the new "Powered by Yelp" experience would be featured prominently on relevant Bing Local pages starting Thursday, with a full U.S. rollout "in the coming weeks."

"Whether it's discovering the right restaurant, planning the evening's entertainment or finding local services, Yelp has emerged as a proven and trusted resource," said Mike Nichols, general manager of Bing. "Enabling people to do more with search involves building a spectrum of features and data that people trust, and teaming up with Yelp is another important step."

This, coupled with iOS6 ditching Google Maps is going to make Yelp marketing more important for local businesses.
