Google News Archive

  • We have previously written about Google's move to integrate its BlogSearch results into its already existing NewsSearch results. At that time, we identified a work-around that would allow you to retrieve Blog-only results from the BlogSearch database's previous incarnation. Google recently discontinued access to that work-around - killing BlogSearch once and for all. Results from blogs...


  • We previously reported that Google has quietly increased the date coverage of its News Search, which previously had covered only the most recent 30 days. However, the change was so “quiet,” that the available Google News documentation is out of date and incorrect – and there is no reliable way to know how far back results will now go for any News search.        ...

While conducting test searches today, we have learned that Google has...


  • The Boston Phoenix is reporting that Google "would cease accepting, scanning, and indexing microfilm and other archival material from newspapers" that makes up its Google News Archive Search. "Instead of recent stories, this database retrieves major newspaper and magazine articles and other news archives." Publications can charge users to access this older news content,...

When it was available, selecting this option reordered the results,...
