After Google walking away from the Yelp deal (or the other way round?), it appears like Yahoo could possibly be wooing the local reviews website. In a recent interview with Brian Womack from Business Week, Carol Bartz, the CEO at Yahoo hinted at the possibility.
Bartz was asked whether her company was looking at acquiring Yelp, to which she replied
“Local is extemely important. People do some outrageous percentage of their commercial spending five miles from their home.”
That is still not an emphatic “Yes”. But then it is not a “No” either and for the moment, we will just assume that Yahoo is interested.
