CNET: Google may prioritize stories for paying news subscribers. “Google plans to prioritize news articles in search results for users who already subscribe to those news outlets, Bloomberg reported Tuesday. The Alphabet unit will also begin sharing data with media companies on who’s most likely to buy a subscription, Bloomberg reported, citing anonymous sources. The initiative, expected to be unveiled at an event March 20 in New York, aims to help media companies find and retain paying customers.”
