How Google supports journalism and therefore the news industry

Over the past 20 years, we’ve collaborated closely with the news industry and provided billions of dollars to support the creation of quality journalism within the digital age. Through both our services and our direct funding of stories organizations, Google is one among the world’s biggest financial supporters of journalism.

We've shown that commitment over decades of monetary support by providing billions of dollars — sharing revenue with news publishers via our ad network, developing tools, training and funding through programs just like the Google News Initiative, and launching Google News Showcase. All of those have led to us paying news organizations significant amounts of money.
These efforts help people get the standard news and information that matters to them and their community.

News, the web and regulation
Newspaper circulation has been falling for many years . and therefore the internet, while providing cheaper distribution and more potential readers, completely changed the business models of stories organizations, with classifieds revenue moving to specialized online classified services and increased competition from a wider range of publications. Technology companies, news organizations and governments have to collaborate to enable a strong future for journalism and quality content that doesn’t disrupt access to the open web.
The internet was built on the ability to link freely between websites, which allows people to simply browse the internet. Changing this is able to fundamentally break the way the open web works, and the way people use Google Search. this is often why we and many others are concerned by some proposals that would require news publishers to be paid just for showing links to their sites from a Google search results page.
