Local.Com Renews With Yahoo! (LOCM, YHOO)

Print Email

Local.com Corp. (NASDAQ:LOCM) has announced that it has renewed a multi-year agreement with Yahoo! (NASDAQ:YHOO).  Yahoo! will continue to deliver its sponsored search results to Local.com, including Local.com’s recently expanded local search network. 

This is a ‘renewal’ rather than a new pact but according to the release this gives an ongoing shot of delivering additional search traffic to Yahoo’s advertisers under the sponsored search results.  Unfortunately, no terms and conditions were disclosed in the announcement.

This is too small to have any impact on Yahoo! shares, but Local.Com (LOCM) shares are up 14% to $6.77 in pre-market trading.  As a reminder, this is one of the microcap web stocks that often sees large price swings on days when it has news.
