User review and search service Yelp is keeping up its brisk growth, and to celebrate that its 20 million reviews, the company created this infographic showing a heat map of all user submissions across the United States.
Even though Groupon, LivingSocial and Google are making great strides in the local space, theyâ€™re not really in the reviews business â€” which still allows Yelp to enjoy explosive growth.
The company said it had reached 15 million reviews at the end of 2010. This year, as of July 11, itâ€™s sporting a total of 20 million reviews with 53 million unique visitors per month. That puts the company on track to beat its estimated number of 24 million reviews in 2011.
As its review inventory grows to gargantuan proportions, it only makes the site even more powerful.
And look at that â€” Shake Shack, one of our favorite haunts thatâ€™s right around the corner from our New York headquarters, was the most-reviewed burger joint with 2201 reviews.
