Reasons Yellow Pages Delete Reviews

The table below explores reasons Yellow Pages will delete a bad review.

Yellow Pages may choose to remove a poor review if it:
  • Doesn't seem like it's based on an actual experience
  • Is offensive or derogatory
  • Is based on a rumor or second-hand information
  • Is defamatory
  • Has swear words
  • Has personally identifiable information
  • Is written by a competitor
  • Is written in a language other than English
  • References information that relates to a current legal case
  • References food poisoning, illegal activity, or medical malpractice (the authorities should be alerted to these)

The challenge here is that Yellow Pages can take as long as they like to consider the review. And they may elect to leave it alone! If that happens, DoNotPay can help. (We can also help you with a defamation lawsuit if needed.)

What You Can Do If Yellow Pages Won't Remove a Review 

If you report a review to Yellow Pages and they won't take it down, there are still some options left to you.

  • If the review is defamatory, you can sue the person using DoNotPay's Sue Now product.
  • You can try responding to the review to try to resolve the problem. However, be careful that you don't escalate the situation in a public forum.
  • You might also consider privately contacting the customer to see if you can fix the problem. Then, they can remove their own review.
