Google News has began embedding YouTube video into news results appearing on the homepage. Just in time for the YouTube 10 second video advertising overlay announced earlier this week. See screenshots with news of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
There was news posted to Planet Chiropractic last week about an introduction of advertising to YouTube video in the form of a 10 second video presentation at the bottom fifth of the video player’s screen. There was also news regarding Google including comments, from people mentioned in news articles, appearing on the Google News homepage.
Now it looks as though Google is rolling out embedded YouTube video along with news results.
Danny Sullivan of Search Engine Land had a report on the Google News comment system ( Google News To Newsmakers ) early in the day on August 8th. Later that evening Danny had a full Q&A discussion regarding the Google News comment system posted to the same website (man he works fast).
To my knowledge Google is only including video news results from limited sources. The video that I saw came from KCRA news in Sacramento, California.
