Yahoo Adds Business Content
Starting today, when you log on to Yahoo Finance to check stocks and other business
news, you'll see content from CNBC. A deal
between the two providers
takes effect today. Both groups hope to boost
their respective visibility by sharing CNBC content through Yahoo's business
This deal with Yahoo is CNBC's first major agreement with an online service.
It's also a first for both by committing to global syndication. CNBC has had
a tough time in the Web space, averaging slightly more than 500,000 visitors
each month over the last few months. Yahoo Finance, on the other hand, had more
than 13 million visitors over the same period of time. So CNBC gets broad distribution
and Yahoo gets CNBC's expert content.
Starting today, CNBC video clips and CNBC.com articles will be posted on the
Yahoo Finance site. There will be as many as several dozen new video clips posted
every day. Yahoo can also share the CNBC content with its international sites.
Yahoo is clearly going after the business crowd; this new agreement comes just
after Yahoo announced another program starting next month that will cover technology
