Google Extends Partnership with AP

Search engine giant Google has extended its content licensing deal with The Associated Press to continue publishing articles on its Google News service.

The deal comes after months of negotiation between the two sides on revenue sharing and will ensure that Googlers continue to read AP content on the platform.

In a blogpost, Josh Cohen, a senior business product manager at Google, wrote that “We look forward to future collaborations, including on ways Google and AP can work together to create a better user experience and new revenue opportunities.”

Meanwhile, the terms of the deal were not disclosed and both did not elaborate on the revenue sharing policies of the new deal.

AP, which started hosting news content on Google back in 2007, said that the renewed partnership will allow them to come up with new ways to improve content discovery and distribution for users.

Other news providers that host content on Google News include Agence France-Presse, UK Press Association and the Canadian Press.
