Google to Provide ABC News Statistics
Google and ABC announced details of a partnership Friday that would provide the network's ABC News Now webcast with search statistics, including rankings on the day's popular search terms and the most viewed news stories according to Google News. The search engine has a similar deal with Al Gore's Current TV in which the most popular search terms of the day are highlighted in a short segment shown every half-hour.
Separately from the ABC deal, Google this week also debuted a version of its News site designed for mobile devices and organized by subject. Only content formatted for mobile screens is shown, however. Google News for mobile devices follows GMail mobile, which the company also recently launched.
