Come On Yelp! Me. Domain Names getting Y'ed

These days local net is getting a great kick. Yahoo and Google are finding ways to become more locally aware. Craigslist leads the race since it's content is all user provided and not some algorithm defined query result. Yelp! is the new entrant in the area , it is about - sharing the local knowledge and recommendations through the network. From finding a reputed Medical Practioner to finding restaurant or plumber, dentists, hairstylist and what not.
