NewsNow hits milestone with database of 10,000 sources has become the first European online news monitoring service to provide non-stop searching of 10,000 online news sources. NewsNow chief executive Nick Gilbert said: "This is a milestone for NewsNow. A superb achievement that demonstrates our commitment to providing the most comprehensive online news coverage possible. Roll on 20,000 sources."

NewsNow benefits from a dedicated publishing search team and nominations from many of the 300,000 regular users to its free news portal. Each potential source is checked for quality and credibility before being accepted into the database.

"We are getting a huge demand for inclusion now that NewsNow has a worldwide reputation and English and foreign-language sites around the world want to attract NewsNow users. About half our new sources are publishers contacting us direct to be included. They have heard about us and know the value of having their publication in our search database," said Bruno Salmi, NewsNow Publisher Relations Manager.

"Our team of source programmers does a great job dealing with the demands of sites requesting inclusion and that of our sales team which drives the internal search for suitable sources to add to the database. At present, we are processing around 1000 sources per month. Hopefully, we will reach our target of 20,000 within twelve months."

"There's an immense feeling of satisfaction, not only in seeing our database grow as fast as it is, but also from the feedback we receive from publishers, many of whom come to rely on NewsNow as their main driver of traffic. It's particularly satisfying when we help smaller publishers with quality editorial raise their profile and compete for eyeballs with the larger, brand-name publishers."

NewsNow is receiving requests for inclusion from publishers worldwide. Recent additions include publications in Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Iran, Italie, Malta, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Spain, Turkey, USA. New publications include: Novinite (Bulgaria), Asia Times Online, The Kashmir Telegraph, National Business Review (New Zealand), Aftenposten (Norway), Times (Pakistan), Chesterton Tribune (USA).

NewsNow has pioneered online news monitoring in the UK with the creation of the UK's most popular news portal and dedicated monitoring services for business. The free portal provides hundreds of tailor-made feeds on a wide range of topics as well as offering a free one-word search option.
