“Stop Harassing me and my Employees Yell.com/Hibu Business”

Written on: 28/05/2014

Yell.com / Hibu Business contacted me a while ago to enquire whether I was willing to try their services. I promptly told them that as a Marketing Communications Consultant I would really rather not use their paid for services and settle for a free listing only. That was all good and well, however since then I have received about ten phone calls from their aggressive sales consultants who do not let you get a word in edgeways. Three times I was trapped on the phone for over half an hour. I… Read Full Review

“Waste of time!!”

Written on: 26/04/2014 by AngelaRamos253 (1 review written)

Currently paying £1700 a year for sponsored number position in my area, only to find out when I type my business in that area, there must be 20 plus false ads with fake addresss advertising too. Ive complained to yell about this now 3 times and all I get "is we are looking into it" that was 3 months ago and still no change. Whats the point of paying all that money when I could have put false ads in my self. Yell get a grip or im off next year!… Read Full Review

That is absolutely incorrect. I use Yell.com and have never seen a false ad once. Nice one buddy.

Written on: 25/04/2014 by AmiahEvans63 (1 review written)

“Ad placed in a different town publication? Was NOT...”

Written on: 14/04/2014 by xnClark273 (1 review written)

I've just received an invoice for over £100 to be part of a publication for a month - not even based where I live! The publication they have put the business in is for a town about half an hour away, in an area I do not operate. They are saying I signed up almost a year ago to be in an advert for a month this year, none of it makes any sense! They have now sent me a copy of the alleged 'contract', which is apparently an e-mail eContract, that has never been sent to my e-mail until today. How… Read Full Review

“Absolutely useless”

Written on: 05/03/2014 by VillageCS (1 review written)

I have had a paid listing on Yell.com for 6 months and my 6 month review was due (telephone meeting). Just before the telephone interview, I did a search on Yell for my sector (Computer Repair) and was on the third page for the areas that I was paying for. I explained this during my meeting and the only resolution to have me come up where I was supposed to be was to pay for another 12 months. I had been completely mis-sold what I thought I would be getting and therefore obviously refused to… Read Full Review

“Hibu....What happened? Impossible to do anything now!!!”

Written on: 14/02/2014

I hate them, was simple before now....sell sell sell, harass clients and sell sell sell. Want to do a free listing?? Have fun will take days and days, but they will call you to sell sell sell. Want a free listing on Yell.com, have fun, jumps to Hibu and then your F.....d, game over. Impossible and definetaly a company that will soon go down after so many people get so frustrated. My favourite is the free listing link on their website doesn’t work, search for it and you’ll find it. You see… Read Full Review

I have been trying to place a review on Yell.com for 4 weeks, but have had no success.

“What a rip off !”

Written on: 15/01/2014 by artnbernie (1 review written)

I had a series of meetings with a sales rep from Hibu lots of charts and graphs showing how well things had been the previous year. I was badgered and encouraged to sign up for a whole new series of Yellow pages adverts as well as the yell. All looks fantastic new enquiries will roll in or so I was lead to believe. At the same time my wife took full time control over our office affairs and put in place procedures to cover all aspects of the business including monitoring the advertising. The… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/12/2013

I feel it prudent to advise all business owners about advertising with Yell.com or Hibu (their trading company). A couple of months ago, i placed a paid advert with Yell.com to have my company listed under computer services in Leeds. I duly provided all relevant details, a credit check was carried out and my listing was created. I was assured of great things including monitored phone calls, increased website activity and sales. I today checked my listing and noticed that a competitor has… Read Full Review

As usual a perfectly good website - concise with clear directions has been turned into a messy, completely unnecessary muddle of totally useless bits of rubbish Is it possible to keep things simple and clear? I just want a) the type of business and b) Location ... that's all. W Shakespeare

“Yell Should be Ashamed - A Complete Rip-Off”

Written on: 28/11/2013

I have spent 3 weeks trying to cancel my paid listing with Yell and have been past from pillar to post. This company HIBU/YELL provide absolutely no results and insist on taking hard earned money from hard working people. DO NOT USE YELL, you will regret it. They survive on false claims that do not match what is printed on the can I aiming to meter how many small business's have been ripped off by HIBU/YELL; if you are one of them please respond. Thank you… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/03/2014

We have been shafted by Yell with non performing websites & a Yell.com enhanced listing costing over £400 a month that does not generate enough calls to pay for itself let alone improve my business. We are emergency Locksmiths . When I entered into discussions with Yell over this the answer was that we didn't spend enough money to expect to get calls !!!. I need to do on average 8no jobs just to pay for Yell.com !!. I have now threatened to see them in court as they are still demanding £400 a month until contract expires in June 2014.

“NEVER EVER USE HIBU OR YELL.COM FOR YOUR DOMAIN!”

Written on: 17/10/2013

As a developer asked to move a site from HIBU's disgustingly unprofessional and grubby hands, I asked to help us with the migration (all hosts do this differently with contractual obligations) but prior to doing anything drastic I asked for communication. Of course they did not listen and at the first sign of losing a client (who had paid for the service) they pulled hosting within 5 mins totally, no emails, no site (now screwed for SEO for a while) and then have taken 5 days to do anything… Read Full Review

“Will not remove untrue review or allow us to reply”

Written on: 24/09/2013 by Temptations (1 review written)

Vindictive customer who walked out of our shop without paying. He promised to return but did not. Placed a totally untrue and unfair review of our shop on Yell but Yell will not allow us to reply and tell the true facts. So this review remains as a blight against our good reputation that we have built up over 20 years with fantastic customer service but one customer is allowed to post lies and Yell refuse to even allow a reply from us. Avoid Yell.com… Read Full Review

I took out a Yell advert for my make-up artistry business. At the time, I was working from a salon, and it suited me to noted the classification as such. I was not told the classification could not be changed. I moved from the salon and that was where my problems started. It was investigated and found that I was miss-sold the product but, in an attempt to keep my business they agreed to cease payment for the existing advert and also set up a new correct advert free of charge. I was happy with… Read Full Review

“Useless!”

Written on: 05/08/2013

In my particular experience of trying to submit a review of a trade that advertises on yell, its just a waste of time. To start with the whole site is not user friendly and it is often difficult to navigate where you want to get to. I submitted a review in my account and two months later still waiting for it to be posted! After contacting via email (and being redirected to use a different mail address) I was assured the review should have gone live after a couple of days. I rewrote the review… Read Full Review

“If you want your business to collapse, just ask Yell!”

Written on: 10/06/2013 by MuckyPups (1 review written)

Never been so disgusted and angered in all my life. Avoid a website through Yell at all costs. All they do is charge you a fortune to set up a website address. You will be required to write the entire site yourself and as to be expected with all these large companies, you will be completely miss-sold, lied too and promised that your site will be written via some expert professional. The person who wrote mine didn't even have basic English skills. My listing now appears so low in the search… Read Full Review
