Yelp has released a new way to play with the online review giant’s data. Yelp Trends[1] allows you to see how popular certain terms have been over Yelp’s ten years in business. It’s interesting to see just how Starr focused Philadelphia was back in 2006-08[2].

Other things we’ve taken from the charts:
