Google Finance Includes Blog Posts

Posted on March 21, 2006

Google has launched Google Finance, a financial resource with stock quotes, stock charts, news, company facts, and company financials. The new site also includes blog posts. For example, if you search GM on Google Finance you will see a few blog listings on the right side if you scroll down the page. We hope Google will eventually start showing blog posts on Google News as well.

Search Engine Watch reports that Google Finance currently only has data on companies in North America but will expand to include other countries eventually. John Battelle has more details about the launch and uses a Google vs. Yahoo graphic, which is appropriate since Yahoo Finance will be threatened by Google's new finance site. Newspapers won't like it either. They are threatened by both Google and Yahoo and stock table have been dropped by many print newspapers including the New York Times.
