    Google buys Zagat

    Google bolsters local with purchase of Zagat which provides authority reviews about restaurants, hotels and nightclubs.

  2. Interesting acquisition, I suspect that they're going to continue to buy more companies like this. They need more reviews in their Google Places, for example.

    Hi,

    I wonder how many different review sites they will pick up in the future if this works for them?

    Google has like 36 BILLION dollars OUTSIDE the USA.
    They got bucks to buy a lot of sites and businesses.

    Then the money in the USA...plus what they got from their latest bond sale (believe that is it).
    Again, they can buy a lot of sites and businesses.

    Think about it.
    Why be a one horse show when you can expand?

    Up until now it's fairly easy to rank for local businesess; i'm working at some sites to create leads. But, i've always been under the impression that Google is eating more and more out of local organic results.

    I think google does this to stop new threats. Before this small site become their competitor Google offer big money and buys them.
