Google acquires Zagat
While no purchase price was disclosed, Zagat had previously put it self up for sale with a $200 million price tag. As for Zagat, the company called itself a "pioneer in user-generated content" acquired by another "renowned innovator" in Google. We can see the upside here to Google as the purchase will bring many Zagat fans who trust the brand, into Google's sticky web which should translate into more cash in the company's coffers.
