    Yell? You mean Yelp?

    With high PR backlinks you can beat Yelp, so it's possible, but difficult. Don't expect your site to rank above Yelp within a week. You just have to keep trying. Also, you can just build links to your own Yelp page (if you have one). It's easier to promote your own Yelp page than to outrank a Yelp or Google listing, and your business benefits either way.

    Hey sunny,

    What has always worked best for me when ranking is to have a couple .edu or .gov backlinks pointing to my site. You can either write a couple articles yourself, or outsource them on Elance, which is what I would do.

    With this alone, you should have no problem beating out your competition. A few powerful backlinks are always better than more.

    Hope this is helpful!
