Google's shopping list

Google thinks big these days. Here are the top 50 web properties according to ComScore, in order of importance (comscore.com/press/release.asp):

  1. Yahoo (probably too expensive)
  2. Time Warner
  3. Google [x]
  4. Microsoft (may lead to monopoly issues)
  5. Fox
  6. eBay (expensive but can be considered)
  7. Wikipedia [Wikipedia founder says "no" to this deal)
  8. Amazon (can be considered)
  9. Ask Network (not interested)
  10. New York Times (Nice option, though news has always been a neglected child)
  11. Weather Channel (can be clubbed with news)
  12. Viacom
  13. Apple
  14. CNET (same as NYT above)
  15. Adobe (why not)
  16. Gorilla Nation
  17. Wal-Mart
  18. AT&T
  19. Target Corporation
  20. Expedia
  21. United Online, Inc.
  22. Facebook (extension to orkut)
  23. Lycos
  24. Monster Worldwide (may make a sense)
  25. CBS Corporation
  26. Verizon Communications Corporation
  27. Bank of America
  28. CareerBuilder
  29. Gannett Sites
  30. Idearc Media

  45. Weatherbug Property
  46. Citysearch

So what’s next in the shopping list for Google?

My picks will be NYT, Amazon, Monster.com (instead of simplyhired) and i would love to see a Gaming Site in the list too.

What Say??
