edit Liberty Media Corporations
Liberty Media Corporation is one of the largest holdings companies, which holds interests in several globally branded online commerce, media, communications and entertainment companies such as AOL Time Warner Inc., Discovery Communications, Inc., Motorola, Inc., QVC, Inc., Sprint PCS Group, Starz Encore, Telewest Communications plc, The News Corporation Limited, and USA Interactive. The company also has interests in certain domestic and international programming networks and businesses. Some of the principal assets of the company also comprise interests in international video distribution businesses; plant and equipment manufacturers; international telephony and domestic wireless telephony; and other related broadband service businesses. The class A and Class B common stocks of the company are traded in the New York stock exchange under the symbols L and LMC.B, respectively. Through its subsidiaries, the company operates in North America, Europe and Asia. In 2004, Liberty was described by Microsoft's Slate magazine 2004 as, “A strange hybrid—part venture capital fund, part mutual fund, part asset shuffler extraordinaire, and part long-term operator of businesses.” The company is rated No. 281 in FORTUNE 500 and No. 316 in FT Global 500.
The company found its origin as part of TCI, an American cable television group and was acquired by AT&T in the year 1999 for $54 billion. Eventually, AT&T spun off the company in 2001. Subsequently, the company spent $5 billion on nine German regional cable networks. In 2001, the company went for aggressive acquisitions of cable operators and content developers in the EU. In 2003, the company bought all of the remaining 57% interests of QVC from Comcast for US$7.9 billion and absorbed Liberty Livewire Corporation.
In 2004, the company emerged as the largest shareholder in the Murdoch-controlled group. In 2005, the company went for spinning off its stake in the Discovery cable and satellite business and thus a new publicly traded company called Discovery Holdings emerged to house Liberty's 50% stake in Discovery Channel, the Travel Channel, the Learning Channel and Animal Planet, and the Ascent media postproduction business. In 2006, Liberty Media's 50% stake in Court TV was acquired by Time Warner for $735 million. In 2006, IDT sold its IDT Entertainment division to Liberty Media. As a result, the assets of IDT Entertainment and popular line of premium TV channels of Starz Entertainment Group jointly produced content for all distribution platforms. To gain control of DirecTV and the Atlanta Braves baseball team in 2007, Liberty went in for asset swaps with News Corp. and Time Warner. At the completion of the deal, Liberty received the Atlanta Braves, a group of craft magazines and $1 billion in cash in exchange for 60 million shares of Time Warner stock. In addition, Liberty has also purchased Green Bay, Wisconsin, television station WFRV-TV and its branch in Escanaba, Michigan, WJMN-TV, from CBS estimated at about $234 million.

Search Engine Friendliness
A few simple technical fixes can make any site show up better in
The title of a web page appears in search results as the link to that page. Learn more ...
The title of a web page appears as a clickable link in search results and bookmarks. A descriptive, compelling home page title with relevant keywords can increase the number of people visiting the site.
Search engines view the text of the title tag as a strong indication of what the page is about. Accurate keywords in the title tag can help the page rank better in search results.
A title tag should have fewer than 70 characters, including spaces. Major search engines won't display more than that.
The title tag of your home page (and any other page on your site) should not contain the site’s domain name or URL. These will appear near the title in search results, so use your 70 characters to tell people what the page is about. The title tag should not contain any HTML, because it will be displayed incorrectly or not at all.
- Good: This web page has a title tag.
- Good: The title tag is a good length.
- Warning: The title uses the same text as the H1 heading on this page. They should be different.
- The title of this site's home page:
- “Liberty Media Corporation”
The H1 heading is an important sentence or phrase on a web page that quickly and clearly tells people and search engines what they can expect to find there. Learn more ...
Just one H1
In most cases, a web page should have just one H1 heading. Using multiple H1 headings is okay if that is a logical way to organize the page, but they should be used sparingly. That’s because search engines can view multiple H1 headings as an attempt to signal that all the content on a page is equally important, a tactic that’s seen as an attempt to game the search engine algorithms.
Search engines look for an H1 heading to determine what a page is about. Human visitors do, too.
Content and placement
The H1 heading appears on the web page itself, unlike the page title, which people will see mostly in search results.
The H1 tag (which contains the H1 heading) is usually listed first among the other heading tags for a page. None of the major search engines, however, will penalize a site for listing H2 through H6 tags ahead of the H1 tag.
- Good: This page has one H1 heading.
- H1 heading for this site's home page:

Your website's robots.txt file can tell search engines to ignore parts of your site. Learn more ...
Website owners usually use robots.txt to let search engines know which pages or sections of their site shouldn't be indexed for example, web contact forms, print versions of web pages and other content that's duplicated elsewhere on the site. Robots.txt can also be used to request that specific robots not index a site. For more information, read How To Use Robots.txt.
Search engine robots
You'll need to know the names of specific search engine robots - or "bots" – if you’re going to exclude any or all of them from any part of your site.
- Google’s bot is called Googlebot. Google is the world’s largest search engine, and is where many people discover new websites.
- Bing’s bot is called msnbot. Bing also provides search results to people using Yahoo to search the Web. Together, Bing and Yahoo are the second largest search resource, after Google.
- Baidu’s bot is called Baiduspider. Baidu is a major search engine in China, and the number of people using it is increasing rapidly.
- AboutUs.org’s bot is called AboutUsBot. To create a Site Report, AboutUs uses crawling technology that’s similar to what search engines use.
- Good: This website’s robots.txt file is not blocking major search engines from crawling its pages. Your website can appear in any engine’s search results.
This website can live at www.LibertyMedia.com or LibertyMedia.com. It's best for your site's visibility to live at just one URL, or web address. You'll want to create a 301 redirect to the URL you choose from the other URL. Learn more ...
Choose one or the other
If the same web page exists at two different URLs, people can choose to link to one or the other. Links from other sites to your website are valuable — they tell search engines that your site is important to people. By splitting valuable links between two identical pages, you're diluting the power of those links to help a page rank higher in search results.

Capture visitors who type the wrong name
It can make a lot of sense to redirect a domain to an existing web page. For example, many people are likely to type wikipedia.com when they are really looking for wikipedia.org. Creating a redirect from wikipedia.com to wikipedia.org helps these people get to the site they want.
