The UK's leading online news monitoring service, NewsNow, has passed another milestone by delivering its 25 millionth headline.

NewsNow is well known for its news portal and tailored newsfeed services that create an easy way for Internet users to keep an eye on news as it breaks across a host of web sites.

"This is a superb achievement," said Nick Gilbert, NewsNow Chief Executive.

"Were obsessed with news and reaching 25 million is a reminder of how far we have come since we launched five years ago. I think reaching this milestone is testament to the support of hundreds of publishers and thousands of subscribers. We have all come a long way since we launched back in the heady days of the dotcom bubble.

"We know that our subscribers expect a non-stop fault-free service with access to headlines at any time so we have put a lot of effort into creating the right level of service. In recent months we have strengthened our bandwidth offering, our hardware specification and the quality of our technology to make sure that we can carry on for the next 25 million headlines."

NewsNow tracks about 200,000 headlines per day, amounting to 1.7m per month.

To ensure that NewsNow users can search easily through old headlines we keep a database of 30 days which requires about 500Mb of storage.

NewsNow recently passed the 7500 news source barrier, offering links to news from more online publications than any other news search service.

NewsNow customers include IBM, AMD, Cable and Wireless, and Direct Line.
