12th May 2005

NewsNow, the Internet news monitoring agency, has doubled its news source monitoring capacity to provide real-time searching of 20,000 sources comprising international, national and regional papers, consumer, trade and technical titles, government press pages, press releases, blogs, webzines and newsletters in more than 15 languages from 84 countries.

Growing at a rate of more than 100 sources per week

NewsNow chairman Struan Bartlett said: "Since June 2003 when we added our 10,000th source, our experienced team have been adding sources at the phenomenal rate of more than 100 a week. This not only doubles the capacity of our service to locate and deliver to our customers the news they need to know. It also doubles the number of publications to whom we drive subscriptions, high-quality registrations and traffic vital to their growth."

NewsNow's hundreds of SME, national and multinational business customers as well as the 500,000 regular users of its free-to-web news portal www.NewsNow.co.uk have seen their value-for-money double as the extra 10,000 sources have been added. In turn, NewsNow drives registrations, subscriptions and high-quality readership to these extra 10,000 sources. NewsNow benefits from a dedicated publication research team. It also receives nominations from many of the 500,000 regular users of its free-to-web news portal NewsNow.co.uk.

Every source is checked for quality and credibility before being ranked and filed in NewsNow's source database. Afterwards, the source is monitored and, once found, published articles are then cross-referenced, according to criteria specified by NewsNow's clients and experienced staff of news professionals. Portal users and customers are informed of articles, relevant to their personalised requirements, within minutes of publication.

NewsNow pioneered online news monitoring in the UK with the creation of the UK's most popular news portal and dedicated Internet news monitoring services for business. Its free-to-web portal provides hundreds of tailor-made feeds on a wide range of topics as well as offering a free single-word search facility.
