[size=36]Google is making amazing profits from news content ads[/size]
Google posted a profit of $ 4.7 billion in 2018 in the form of ads on news content and media, according to a recent study.
The study, released on Monday, revealed that Google's profits from advertising on news and media content last year were roughly equal to all the revenues of the online media industry.
According to the study conducted by "News Media Alliance" that between 16 and 40 percent of Internet searches related to the news, according to the newspaper "The Guardian" British.
According to the study, Google's profit of $ 4.7 billion in news content is only $ 400 million less than the $ 5.1 billion in the US media industry.
However, media workers have warned that the figures in the study may be "conservative," as they do not seek to include the value of personal data for users each time they use search services to squeeze the story in question.
Some questioned some aspects of the study and the method used to obtain the results.
Researchers at the University of Columbia's School of Journalism and Information, Bill Grunkin, said researchers appeared to have picked a random sample of comments from 2008 at a conference on "The Value of Google News," to get figures that are supposed to represent how Google is achieving financial returns from the news.
Google also criticized the study and said it ignored Google's value and considered the calculation to be incorrect.
A spokesman for Google said the company was working hard to further collaborate with the news industry and provide the necessary technology support to online publishers around the world.
However, the study highlights the increasing reliance of the media on large technology companies to disseminate and distribute news, and thus tighten its control over media content, such as Google, Facebook and Apple.
The number of visitors to the Google News site in the United States in 2009 was 24 million unique visitors per month for 50 million unique visitors monthly to CNN and the New York Times together.
In May 2018, the number of unique visitors to the Google News site in the United States was about 150 million visitors per month, double the visitors to CNN and the New York Times together in the same period.
