  • First time writers of written words in the business community section, please be sure to read the Talk page guidelines before submitting any talk page messages to the site.
  • You can find the exact types of compliments you've received on your full-Yelp profile page. The Yelp homepage, once you've signed in, will display just the total number of compliments you've received, and it will also tell you when you receive a new compliment.
  • At any time after selecting the compliment type, you may remove the default compliment and type your own.


  • You cannot send a compliment to yourself on your own reviews. That is totally impractical to do, and is not something they developed into the system, so you'll know you've stumbled upon one of your own reviews, when you read the business page and see one without the compliment button.
