The originator of the game, Niantic, is allowing business firms to pay for sponsorship deals linked with Pokemon Go. As for Yelp, it has always wanted to remain in the mainstream when it comes to exploration of the environment. How people go about finding shops and bistros is what Yelp is all about. 

Among some of the services that Yelp offers its valued clientele may be included: the best eateries, the most satisfying massage parlors and florists with the most aesthetic and fragrant flowers in the vicinity.

Yelp collects these facts via crowd sourcing. Its consumer base supplies the reviews regarding the various local businesses and services. Pokemon Go just takes this trend a step higher for Yelp.

That is why the head honchos at Yelp are ready to jump on the bandwagon. Yelp does not want its clientele to miss a single PokeStop. Now that is definitely a worthy goal if ever there was one.
