Technology giant Google hopes to improve its relationship with international media companies via its Google News Initiative. Google has committed to investing $US300m ($A389m) in a range of news-related projects, including changes to its search algorithms to ensure that "authoritative" news sources are displayed first in its search results. Meanwhile, the Subscribe with Google project will make it easier for Google users to take out subscriptions with news publishers via Google’s platform.
