geocities yahoo logoAs pre-warned, Yahoo is closing the legendary GeoCities software today.

This is a serious thing on the search front. Let's not forget what Google's, JohnMu, Tweeted "Surprised at how many serious sites are hosted on GeoCities: get a domain name and move your stuff out NOW!" Now he would know the value of some of these GeoCities sites.

Yes, if you have not moved your content, images, videos and sites to a new platform - they will likely be forever gone and forgotten.

An end of an era

Hard to believe but I created my first website at Geocities when people who knew HTML were called geeks. Unfortunately a lot of people will be losing the data, although yahoo did their part of notifying users in advance. I will personally miss it.

The question is what will happen to Geocities if Yahoo will shut down it or Yahoo we create another search engine like Geocities.
