NASDAQ Internet Index – No Microsoft, News Corp?

Yesterday we noted the launch of a new Nasdaq stock market index tracking only Internet companies, called the NASDAQ Internet Index. The index (^QNET) will track a diverse range of companies covering “Internet access providers, Internet search engines, web hosting, website design, and Internet retail commerce.”

The list is now available (thanks TraderMike). The leading companies include Google, Yahoo, eBay, Amazon, IAC/InterActiveCorp. It also includes international companies, like Baidu and Sohu from China.

As Josh noted earlier today though, curiously absent are sites like Microsoft and News Corp. – who control some of the most popular properties on the Internet (MSN/Live and MySpace/FIM respectively). These companies many not be only Internet companies, but their impact on the web is undeniably enormous. Are there any other public Internet companies missing who you think should be there?
