Google, news wires in syndication deal. September 1, 2007

Posted by Joanne KY Teoh in News.

Google has begun hosting on its site material from major news services AP, Agence France-Presse, the UK Press Association, and the Canadian Press. The full content of these articles will appear on Google News, instead of only linking to news org sites where those stories have been syndicated.

This deal could diminish Internet traffic to newspaper and broadcast companies’ Web sites where those stories and photos are also found. The development threatens to reduce those companies’ revenue from online advertising.

So dot com arms of broadcast news which merely repurpose their TV news scripts, buck up and start beefing up your local content, or at least customize those wire stories more.
