On October 27,2009 , none of the Geocities.Com websites were accessible by anyone. Users were given the following message
Sorry, the GeoCities web site you were trying to reach is no longer available.
GeoCities has closed, but there’s a lot more to explore on Yahoo!
Yahoo already notified it’s users that they will be closing the service in Late October, and they did. It seems like all DMOZ and Yahoo Directory listings for Geocities will have to be removed. Geocities is ranked top 200 websites as of today by Alexa, but they will go down even more since not many people will visit Geocities as it’s dead.
