Google News growing at just 10 per cent year-on-year

Google News is growing more slowly than most major news web sites, the New York Times notes today.

Although the news aggregator has frequently been the target of criticism — and even lawsuits — from parts of the news industry, it is not as dominant in its sector as Google’s main search service.

The New York Times cites Nielsen Online figures, which show Google News on 11.4 million users in the United States last month, a figure that has been growing at 10 per cent year-on-year – a figure far lower than many news sites. The figure places Google News eighth among US news sites, well behind market leader Yahoo News, which boasts 35.8 million users.
