Google Launches News Archive Search Service

September 6, 2006 at 12:50 pm 1 comment

The Google News Archive Search service was formally launched today. After Google Inc. registered several domains with the words news and archive in them, leading blogger Garett Rogers of CNET Networks’ ZDNET Blogs made some predictions about what the service would offer that ended up being pretty accurate. Even though Mr. Rogers first thought that the service would enable a more WayBackMachine type historical view of the web he was still very accurate with Google Inc. describing the service as, ” The News Archive Search service provides an easy way to search and explore historical archives. News archive search can automatically create timelines which show selected results from relevant time periods.”

In typical Google style the News Archive Search service is extremely accurate and detailed. When searching for the keyword Facebook (an online directory that connects people through social networks) the search article results are very thorough and the option to view the results in a timeline format are extremely accurate.

Of course, lets not forgot how TechCrunch brilliantly and typically broke the story first and the night before Google made the formal announcement. View TechCrunch’s blog about the service here and well as informative comments on John Battelle’s Searchblog at BattelleMedia.com.
