Galvin's Clock And Watch Repair - Awesome!

A while back, on Yelp, I gave a great review for my friend, Galvin, of Galvin's Clock And Watch Repair in San Gabriel, California.

But when I go back to the Yelp page, and find Galvin, my review is nowhere to be seen.   Why?

I've since heard that Yelp,  "charge businesses to remove or re-order bad reviews!".

And, at http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-10168065-93.html, "six business owners said Yelp sales reps promised to remove or move negative reviews in exchange for advertising and that in six other instances positive reviews disappeared or negative ones appeared after owners declined ad deals."


When I met Galvin, I saw someone who had to be one of the best, if not the best, in the business of watch repair.  But he didn't have a lot of traffic.  I'd hoped a good review on Yelp would help all the wearers of expensive watches in Los Angeles find him.  They would be happy they did.

Well, since it's not appearing on Yelp, or when I do a search on Google, I'm going to just post the review on my own blog.  So there.

Here was the review I wrote:
