Google News Archive Search allows you to search through news articles that date back longer than the 30 days that are typically covered by regular Google News. It’s still available. However, it’s now more difficult to use without having its own home page. Yesterday, the URL for the Google News Archives started redirecting to the Google home page. Today, it now redirects to the Google News advanced search page. Help pages for Google News Archives have also disappeared; they used to be available at news.google.com/archivesearch/help.html.

In today’s world of instant gratification, with Twitter often “scooping” traditional news sources, we still turn to professional journalists for accurate, timely news, and confirmation of the events that transpired. While “breaking” news offers instant awareness, we still want to read news accounts reported by trained pros, who have dug deeply for facts and have published stories that have been vetted by qualified editors. Nonetheless, we want “fresh” news, and increasingly we want to sample viewpoints from a diverse number of sources. We definitely don’t want yesterday’s “fish wrappers” as dated print newspapers were once called. So we turn to online news aggregators, and one of the most popular, with more than a billion users per week, according to Google, is Google News. With good reason: Google News offers 72 editions in 30 languages, drawing content from more than 50,000 sources. Only one problem: In recent months, … [Read more...] about When Google News Fails, Here’s How To Fix It
Universal Search is the biggest thing to happen to search since the Florida update and when Google rolled out Universal Search is rewrote the rules on search marketing and SEO. Greg Jarboe says that the changes brought abot in Universal Search were the most radical change to search; ever. Jarboe uses examples of Google searches in a timeline fashion, showing the results for iPhone as provided by Google News in the normal Google search results. Jarboe then shows how a YouTube hosted video by Apple also appears in the results. The next step was the integration of images in Google results, then movie times and news results embedded in Google results and then Google Blog Search results are also integrated into the Universal Search results. Suddenly Image, Blog Search, News, Local, Finance and Video Search results are all being served on the Google Universal results ‘front page’. Another example is a search for Hurricane Dean on Google with News & Blog results… but … [Read more...] about Google Universal Search : Invasion of News, Video & Blogs
