GeoCities, the world's sixth most popular Web site after Yahoo, Netscape, Microsoft, America Online and Excite, wants its share of the attention.
GeoCities, which operates an advertising-supported Web site dedicated to the concept of so-called virtual communities, is preparing for a public offering in the second half of 1998. GeoCities supplies free home pages and tools to build them to 1.7 million users that it calls "homesteaders".
These pages are categorised into 40 virtual "neighbourhoods" or communities, based on a variety of interests: "Nashville" for country music, for example.
