Google’s New Meta-Tags For News Story Authors

November 26th, 2010 11:40 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

EreIamJH writes “Google News is experimenting with meta-tags in an effort to ensure that the correct news source is credit with an article. The original-source meta-tag will identify the newspaper that brakes a story, while syndication-source is for everyone who repeats the story. Both meta-tags can appear multiple times — for instance an article that sources information from other articles would include an original-source tag for each article used in preparing the new article. While the intention is worthy, I look forward to lots of snarky blogger fights as journalists vent their hurt feelings for having been omitted as an original source.”
