Yext Complaints & Reviews

YextBusiness Listings

Yext purchased control of my Yahoo business listing awhile back, which was a free service when I set it up. Now, in order to update my listing or have it removed, Yext expects me to pay them as a member. This is extortion. Plain and simple, yes? Every attempt to get my listing removed from their control has gone in circles and I am livid. This listing is among the first to appear when my name is searched and it contains outdated information as well as images. It must be removed, but I will not pay criminals to do so.

    YextCustomer service and automatic renewal

    I had been a customer since 2018 with all my customers using the service. I was automatically renewed in late February. I reached out to my rep to discuss and he never responded. I just concluded a three month communication with Yext's ticket system and they will not cancel my auto renewal as they claim I had inform them 30 days before renewal. Had a rep contacted me I would have. These are tough times. All my agency's clients are closed. I had cancelled each individual client account with Yext. I offered to pay one month as a compromise but they will not accept. I just told them to terminate my account completely and will never work with them again. I assume I will see them in court. What a poor way to treat a customer. There are plenty of other services out there.

      YextWebsite Lure to advertise

      Yext constantly uses the free listings links to lure you in and charge you to advertise. This company is satan's right hand. Shame on them. Don't have any money or a job which is why I am trying to get a free listing. Hell awaits companies that thrive on the innocent hard working LOWER CLASS citizens.
      YEXT is evil. I receive emails everyday to fix my listings. STOP and fix you salvation evil doers!!!

        Yextinternet search listings

        I do not want my phone number or/and address, business hours or service list posted on the internet. I'm a small home based business not taking in new clients. I have made several attempts to delete my business info from several search engines, maps etc. Listings that I was not ever asked to review or did I agree or sign up for. Yext is a scam company that makes it difficult to edit or delete business information on listings of anybody affiliated with them, like mapquest and others. In the last 6 months I have made several attempts to change and delete my information from companies affiliated with yext and I haven't been able to successfully do so.

          YextJust awful

          They have inattentive blind employees.
          I changed some information in my ads and notified their service. They promised to change it as well.
          But nothing like this has happened. I have been trying to contact customer service for a week, but it's impossible to reach them.
          What's going on? The line is always busy, even in the evening. I am glad that you have many customers, and if you're unable to pick up the phone, then maybe you will reply my emails? Numerous emails I have sent to get your attention. Please, I need your assistance and I would prefer to get my money back as soon as possible.
          Thank you in advance,

              I have had the same problem in updating our Mapquest listing. I don't know what else to do. It's been about a month to get this listing corrected, and all I get are excuses.

After all, starting out I needed to get some advertising going. Turns out the majority of the sites they put you on are junk. After a year I have received a whopping 0% return on investment! I canceled as soon as I received the automatic renew email...

              I had a company called YEXT - a so called geo cloud online marketing company call me and I mean call me several times bugging me to get on board with their services. I just opened my business and they pretty much took control over all of my company information! Phished my email and apple account as well. They duplicated a facebook page of my business which I can not access or remove from facebook! When you search for my business on google it shows the fake facebook page instead of the page I administrate! This company needs to be looked into by the FBI or whoever! Since getting set up with them I have had nothing but problems with all of my online accounts! Do not do service with this company! BEWARE OF YEXT services! A TOTAL SCAM!!!

                Yextfalse charges and false sales

                Was contacted by Yext Power listings a year ago, was told they optimize our web site on numerous search engines including Google -
                They said they would clean up miss information - Our site was still showing us in a old location - They said they would fix that issue also.

                So We Paid them $ 499.99
                About a month or so Afterwards - I contacted them because the Search still shows our location at the old address, I was then told I had to do the corrections, they gave me the companies to contact but they did not do the work it was my responsibility. I requested a refund, they declined stating it was in a disclosure that we never received.

                Then on October 15th 2013 they automatically billed me again. I called Yext and spoke to the customer service, The woman stated that this was an automatic Renewal and they would pro rate the credit. I told her we told them last year when we requested a refund and stated to cancel the service back them, they declined the refund, but stated it was not going to be renewed.

                They woman stated there was no record of this and that it could only be prorated.
                So THIS COMPANY IS NOTHING BUT A SCAM SERVICE

                  Yext.comthis is a bad company, and very unethical

                  This company, yext inc., forces a business to pay for a year of service to remove incorrect information from all their partnered sites. - that's extortion, pure and simple, because the links to fix it go to them, instead of the actual site the incorrect info shows on. - and yext doesn't give you control to change the info unless you pay them - they have three links on their partnered sites, for creating, changing, and claiming a website listing. - if you don't pay for a years worth of their "service" you are not allowed to change or remove any of the incorrect info. - I never put anything on any of the sites they partner with, but my incorrect business phone number showed, and I can't remove it, and yext says they can't either, unless I buy an account, instead of just asking their "partner site" to remove it free - their partner, yellowmoxie.com doesn't want to remove it either, when I asked them. I have an abuse complaint pending, with their isp providers.... I'll next go to the fcc,... The bbb.org site rates yext "c minus"... Not surprising.!... :-)... This is a bad company, and very unethical... So, it seems, yellowmoxie.com is too... Stay away...!... Maybe all the yext partnered sites are as bad too, if they let this happen.

                      I noticed that Yext had my business listed (without my consent) with the wrong phone number. When I filled out the form to correct it, it came up with a required charge of nearly $500 to do so. I did not continue with the process, and yet, the next day one of their representatives called me to try and get money from me to correct the number. Isn't that extortion?

                      CAUTION!!! I used Yext.com by providing my business number and ran a scan. Fine, I saw that my address was incorrect in some places and correct in others. Then I went about my business... About 15 minutes later, I get a call from [protected]. I answer. It's a hyperactive New Yorker on the other end who says to me: "Hey! I see that you just used our site to run a scan. Is there anything I can do for you today?" I said, "No, I didn't think you would be calling." He said "Why, did I catch you at a bad time?" (It was a Saturday night around 10:15 PM, by the way.) I said yes. He said he would call back on Monday. I said "No, please don't call." He said "Well, why were you using our web site?" I told him I won't use it again and he said "Sir, anyone is free to use our site, I am just trying to see if you would like to purchase one of our address services." I said "No thanks" and hung up. You've got to be polite to these cretins because they have your business number and address... I was very turned off by this tactic, the business model (asking for businesses to conduct a "search" using their phone number then calling them to upsell!!!), and the annoying person who called me.

                      I hate that their partner sites force you to pay them to fix incorrectly displayed data. I can't believe that is legal.
