Adjusted EBITDA came in at about $7.8 million, up significantly from $1.6 million in the second quarter last year.

The San Francisco-based company also said it is raising its guidance for the full year, bumping up revenue projections to between $222 million and $224 million, which would mark a 62 percent increase over last year.

The stock was trading up three percent, to $43.05, in after-hours trading.

Yelp is currently embarking on an aggressive partnership strategy to help close the transaction loop for local businesses.
