IAC Tries To Buy CitySearch Some Relevance*


MySpace came out with a business-reviews site called MySpace Local. It’s based on listings from IAC’s pre-Web 2.0 business-reviews site CitySearch.  MySpace and CitySearch will split ad revenues.

A source familiar with the deal tells us IAC agreed to a $6 million ad revenue guarantee for the privilege. Anything to stay relevant, we suppose.

See TechCrunch’s post for product details.

Update: IAC says the $6 million figure is wrong. They wouldn’t give us a correct number. Our source is very trustworthy, so we suspect IAC may be splitting hairs.
