Google brings back-issues back to life

Antony Savvas

Google has launched an initiative to put old newspaper archives online.

The search company is partnering with around 100 newspapers around the world to digitise their old content and make it available online. The content covered pre-dates the internet age.

Google will integrate its AdSense advertising service with the programme so publishers can generate revenue from page views of the articles.

Users will be able to go to a specific article in the paper and see related articles from other papers displayed on the right-hand side of the page. Similar technology is used for the existing Google Books service.

The newspaper project expands on a deal Google already has with the New York Times and Washington Post to index back issues in its Google News Archive.
