Google News returns to Spain: How does it affect me and how can I take advantage of it?

Eight long years have passed since the closure in Spain of one of the most used Google services in the world was announced, but in 2022 Google News returns to Spain: how does it affect me and how can I take advantage of it? The Intellectual Property Law sought to force this Google news aggregator to pay to be able to show fragments of its content, which led the American company to drastically close the service.

At the time of closure, the conclusion among journalists and users was unanimous: this measure would irremediably lead to a loss of readers. Eight years later, the predictions were fulfilled and, what is worse, disinformation has been gaining ground on the network. With the return of Google News to Spain after the law has been updated, the main beneficiary will once again be the readerwhich will find the most reliable results from the main media in your searches.

In this return of Google News, it is expected that media publishers will also benefit directly, since it is a tool that drives traffic to your web pagesand therefore they will be able to send the reader their offers to subscribe or the advertising of their own medium.
