Excite – past, present and future
Launched in the US during the mid 1990s, Excite merged with broadband provider @Home in 1999. In Europe Excite forged partnerships with leading local companies; owners included BT in the UK, Telecom Italia and Tiscali in Italy. In 2005 the European properties were acquired by Ask.com, part of the IAC group, and in October 2007, GoAdv announced its acquisition of the European Excite group of companies.
Fortifying the development, marketing and management teams through the GoAdv acquisition, Excite Europe is now perfectly positioned to recapture users with its user-friendly approach and unique personalised portal and search services.
