Google and MySpace In New Search Deal [in.reuters.com]
News Corp's social networking site MySpace and Google Inc have reached a multiyear search and advertising agreement, ending months of uncertainty surrounding the partnership.

Under the new deal, Google will power MySpace search results and search advertising as well as provide additional display ad services.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Considering the amount of money G paid a few years ago in this deal, and the fact that they openly admitted it didn't generate what they expected, the new money must be very small (and thus undisclosed).

Wasn't the owner of MySpace barking at G and threatening to block it from indexing News Corp properties ;) Funny.

It's true MySpace is on it way out, but G has deals with many big but declining sites.

That's crazy, Google getting involved with MySpace. Critical mass has been reached by the other players a year or so ago.

Google knows Myspace is bust.

The there is "gold in them thar hills"!

Google will have a field day data mining all the personal data, photos, email addresses, IP addresses, and private messages.

Myspace gets more traffic than most of our sites...
