CitySearch Acquires Insider Pages

Weebly Relaunches; Even Better

Insider PagesCitySearch, a company owned by IAC (also the parent company of search engine AskJeeves), confirmed the rumors today that it has acquired small Valley-based local search startup Insider Pages for an estimated sum of $13 million.

I have to admit, as much as I don’t see the point of much of what’s going on in the local search space, I have a feeling it could go big. Insider Pages, which was made completely with Ruby on Rails (there’s some inspiration guys!), is basically a local business search and reviews site in the same space as Yelp (which is undoubtedly leading the market right now, could it go next?), Smallville, LinkedIn and others.

I think strategically it makes perfect sense for CitySearch to purchase Insider Pages — while Insider Pages has a lot of the user-generated content, CitySearch has a lot of good data, put them together and you’ll have something good. Insider Pages has Bill Gross, the founder of Idealab (Overture) as Chairman and has received $9 million in venture capital from Sequoia.
