Skift Take

Local discovery is inextricably tied to mobile, and the better Yelp does connecting people to the world around them, the better its business will do.

— Jason Clampet

Yelp Inc, the operator of consumer review website Yelp.com, reported a 66 percent rise in quarterly revenue due to higher revenue from local advertising on mobile devices as more customers use smartphones and tablets for information.

The company’s net loss narrowed to $2.6 million, or 4 cents per share, in the first quarter ended March 31 from $4.8 million, or 8 cents per share, a year earlier.

Revenue rose to $76.4 million from $46.1 million.
