Google to Monetize Google News Soon?

Well I sure hope not, but the possibly is there and Google reps have not dismissed it completely when asked. Imagine what type of monetization potential this untapped resource has currently. According to some offical sources News is the second fastest growing segment for Google and Yahoo this year. 41% of Google users are looking for news. Not natural search, but news search. So it seems logical to eventually harness the potential and milk it for profit.

When will we see ads in our Google News section? No one know for sure, but my guess is potentially sometime in late 2006 or 2007. They are also testing various ad placements internally. Taking a look at the Google News homepage, I am not sure where they would place ads as anything inserted would seem out of place. Guess we will see. If you know anything about this speculation, please comment here?
