Google Print

Google extends search to book contents; provides potential additional revenue stream for authors and publishers.

By JC

Pretty cool — Google’s adding the contents of books to their search results, with the new Google Print beta. If your search results bring up a book, they link to it… you can click, get some info about the book including presumably some text including your search… links to buy it from a number of sellers… and some adsense ads for related things. As a publisher, you can make money by letting google index your books… the ad revenue goes to you much as if you had a site running adsense.

Update — They just posted on the Google Blog about it.
