“Net revenue surpassed pre-pandemic levels, driven by record Advertising revenue from our services categories and our multi-location and self-serve channels. Looking ahead, we believe that connecting consumers with great local businesses through trusted content will be even more relevant to a broader audience, and we plan to keep investing in the Yelp product experience to position our business for profitable growth over the long term,” Stoppelman stated.
