EPA content available in Google News
European Pressphoto Agency (EPA) announced a deal with Google to have the search engine take up EPA content in Google News.
Google News will host text and photos of eight of the eleven national news agencies who are part of EPA.
With this deal Google can now link to original content provided by the press agencies and hosted on Google servers where before they would show multiple versions of the articles. As a searcher you can still click on other copies of the articles.
Google News business product manager Josh Cohen is very happy with the deal. ‘This new approach not only enhances the experience for users, it also gives proper recognition to journalists and publishers who work hard to break the news.’
'Previously, Google News would often display multiple copies of the same news agency articles and photos, with separate links to various sites,’ Google’s Cohen said. ‘Thanks to the agreement with EPA, Google News will now be able to link directly to the original article, on a page hosted by Google.’
