In April 2009, approximately ten years after Yahoo! bought GeoCities,  the company announced that it would shut down the United States GeoCities service on October 26, 2009.    There were at least 38 million user-built pages on GeoCities before it was shut down.  The GeoCities Japan version of the service is still available. 
In 1996, GeoCities had 29 "neighborhoods," which had groupings of content created by the "homesteaders" (GeoCities users).  By 1999, GeoCities had additional neighborhoods and refocused existing neighborhoods. 
In 1999, GeoCities had an online commercial presence with GeoCities Marketplace. It included the GeoStore, which sold GeoCities-branded merchandise. Users cashed in GeoPoints in the store.
