As InterActiveCorp's Barry Diller builds a digital empire of consumer services, he's looking for a little help from online search giant Google.
During this week's Goldman Sachs conference in New York, Diller said InterActiveCorp aims to partner with every major Internet operator for its various services, which include personals site Match.com; the CitySearch family of local guides; travel services Expedia, Hotwire and Hotels.com; and mortgage-referral service LendingTree. InterActiveCorp already works with Microsoft's MSN and Yahoo to drive traffic to some of these Web properties. But now, it wants help from Google, one of the most popular destinations on the Web for finding information.
'Google and our companies are in continuing conversation about different ways we could maybe join in participation in--local search, things like that,' Diller said during a speech at the conference Tuesday. "

Ah! Now I understand! I wrote a little comment to Google a weekago or so about how it was a shame that 'Location Search' in Froogle didn't interact with truly local info. Their return was that they were aware of the lack and were 'working on it'.
