There seems to be an influx of people landing here looking for details on how to delete free Yell listings. I know from experience cleaning up citations for local listings that Yell/Hibu don’t seem to have this information available on their site – or if it is, it is so far buried that no one can find it!
Your business data you provide in your free Yell listing is included in:
- the Yell.com online directory
- your local Yellow Pages paper directory
- the 118 247 telephone directory
- the Yell mobile app
Yell is a handy business listing to have and is often quite high profile in local searches. It’s a business citation I recommend you keep up to date.
How to delete your free Yell listing
You cannot delete a free Yell listing simply by logging in to your ad and editing the details. Remove your listing by contacting them directly by phone.
The best number I have found to request removing your business details is 0800 533433. You will need to know the name of the person who registered the Yell account. Other than that, it’s a simple and quick process. I find that details are removed from the Yell website in a couple of days.
Remember: You don’t need to delete your free Yell.com listing if your business has moved. Simply log in to your Yell account and update your business details.
