Adding a News Service to your site

I did a search on this and I didn't come up with any results, but if this information is somewhere on the site, and I suspect it is please let me know.

I want to add some news headlines to some of my sites, I did a search on Yahoo and got tons of a results, but all of these services look mediocore. I don't want to pay for the headlines either, I want something decent, up to date, but it should be free.

If anyone has any experience and/or web links with this please let me know.

Thanks!

Try moreover.com - its free if you're non-commercial and very good.

Thanks!

I have looked, but can you be a little more specific on where the adding headling stuff is? I can't find it. Can you give me the exact website?

Thanks!

Moreover don't do freebies anymore - just had a look - they must have wised up. I don't know any others - but I imagine Google will get into this pretty soon.

Thanks,

Google may eventually get into it, you're probably right, I was just looking for a simple solution now. The ones I've found I really don't like as the news is not really that interesting.

Thanks again.

I hadn't thought about doing a search on news tickers, thanks for that, some of the results are coming up the same, but some are different and I'll check them out. Thanks!

Anyone else have any good headline news services they use?

Techiemon:

Unfortunately news content is expensive to provide so your free options are extremely limited especially if your site is commercial in nature. This is a big reason why I developed All Headline News. Consider taking advantage of the free trial. Although not a free service, it's expensive to provide the content, bandwidth and servers and staff, it is very low cost and has a very nice feature set.

Moreover isn't free anymore and definetly not inexpensive but they do have a well developed product.

NewsKnowledge also offers headline content but it's not free. Also well developed and competent

Individual sources sometimes offer headline content but beware and carefully read the TOS almost all of them do not allow commercial use or placement of their content.

Here are some links for you

[allheadlinenews.com...]
[moreover.com...]
[newsknowledge.com...]

Also look at Business.com's lisings
[business.com...]
