Google Buys Germany’s DailyDeal for Its Daily Deals (Duh)
When Google failed to snap up Groupon, it decided to build out its own local commerce business. Now it is expanding its reach through acquisitions. The latest is DailyDeal, according to the company, a daily deals site founded in Berlin two years ago that now operates in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Previously, Google acquired Dealmap, a San Francisco-based service that aggregates deals from dozens of providers.
