Shares of social reviewer Yelp  (NYSE: YELP  ) have been on a run so far this year, tapping all-time highs near $60 per share. That rally has translated into frothy valuation figures, as investors are now banking on major growth in the years ahead. The mobile business continues to grow, but Yelp’s advertising business is far from immune.
