Which Other Brands Would CNET Sell Off?


CNET (NSDQ: CNET) Networks reported its Q3 earnings today, and also announced the sales of Webshots. CEO Neil Ashe was pretty clear in the earnings conference call: he is ready to look at other brands the portfolio and sell them off too, if needed. Which other sites within CNET’s portfolio would be sold off? My top three guesses: mySimon (the comparison shopping site which has gone nowhere); TechRepublic (the IT resource site which should really just be merged with ZDNet); and Search.com (a killer domain name, but it is just a meta-search site for now, with very little visibility in the market). An outside chance: MP3.com (no one’s making any money in digital music).
