Web Search--Google
Google Releases "News Search" Beta
Another week goes by and something new from Google. Today, a beta of a searchable Google News database. It can be accessed at http://news.google.com or via a box on the Advanced Search page. According to a company spokesman the database is refreshed with new content every hour and contains material from over 100 English-language sources including Newsday, San Francisco Chronicle, The Guardian, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post and Reuters. Each entry includes a time stamp of when the content was first crawled and links to related articles (if available). You can learn more about Google News Search via this faq.
It appears that the Google limit syntax works with the news database.
intitle: terms in the headline
intext: terms in the text of the article
site:cnn.com limits from a particular source (if available).
We'll keep testing and at the same time be on the lookout for new content and functionality.
