This is interesting. Google is launching a finance-related web site, seemingly to compete with the likes of Yahoo Finance. The site is described as a “financial news, stock quote and chat service,” and apparently financial blogs will be highlighted.
I tried searching for Google on the new service, and you can see the results. I’m wondering, when blogs become more integrated into the site, whether Google will focus solely on blogs operated with Google’s own Blogger. It appears that at this time some blog articles related to the company being researched are listed alongside discussions from Google Groups.
Here’s the announcement of the site via Reuters.
