This can’t be good…

GOOGLE IS SCANNING MAGAZINES!

Google will be scanning magazines available for search within Google Books. Check out the post on Google’s blog.

Over time, as we scan more articles, you’ll see more and more magazines appear in Google Book Search results. Eventually, we’ll also begin blending magazine results into our main Google.com search results, so you may begin finding magazines you didn’t even know you were looking for. For now you can restrict your search to magazines we’ve scanned by trying an advanced search.” Google Blog.

Oh no…..

What does this mean?!? Is the world ending?!?

  1. Is this even legal? Seems what Limewire and Bit-Torrent do for Mp3’s Google will become for magazines. For some indie magazines this could be a great thing, by increasing search-ability, traffic to their websites, and ultimately (and hopefully) a wider readership. But the big guys can’t be happy about it.
