Dating website Match.com, owned by Internet company IAC/InterActiveCorp, has reached a deal to become the exclusive online dating site on Yahoo.

Match.com will replace Yahoo Personals, allowing existing users to switch over to the new service "Match.com on Yahoo." The two companies say they are working together to help users make a smooth transition to Match.com on Yahoo.

Greg-Blatt-Match "The key to a successful online dating experience is having both a thriving community of active members and a sophisticated site experience optimized for dating success," says Greg Blatt, CEO of Match.com. 

"By bringing Yahoo! Personals members to Match.com, our community, which we already believe to be the largest and most vibrant in the space, has become even more compelling for our members.  When you add this to our unparalleled site experience, evolving every month with new features and enhancements, we feel the distance between the online dating experience we offer and that of others in the space is growing even larger."

Over the next two months, existing Yahoo Personals members will be given the chance to move their Yahoo Personals accounts over to Match.com on Yahoo.

Financial terms of the deal were not released.

    I wonder if Hitwise and Comscore will score the sub-domain as part of Match.com pushing them to number 1 on the charts finally. Match.com owns Singlesnet, Chemistry, and People Media dating sites but those are always ranked separately. You would think that Match.com would want number 1 ranking to show on the charts after buying up so many sites.

    I just visited your website and noticed that you don’t have a one-on-one footer chat bar for your users.

    I would like to introduce you to CometChat – a Facebook style floating chat bar. CometChat includes some great features such as video chat and 2-player games. It also integrates seamlessly with your website.

    I can assure you that your users will spend more time on your website once you get CometChat. Do have a look at our website for more information:


    Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any queries whatsoever.

    Warm Regards,

    All this is a way to SMOOTHLY move us to a pay site,what a sneaky bunch of jerks,I belonged to your site before and got screwed over every time I turned around.Might as well buy the competition as that is the only way you can get the easy ones on the hook.
    This is a real shame and YAHOO I thought was a more thoughtful company than this.I will be saying good bye,LEE
