GoogleWith the help of this payment system the consumers would be allowed to pay for the full subscriptions or to have access to the articles which will be just for one time. The whole industry of media enjoys a love and hate relationship with the Internet search giant Google. The Mountain View, who is the online publications company, would be providing great amount of the traffic to those web sites that are related to the newspaper as well as the magazines, but it has been complained by some of the people that this company has grabbed a huge and great portion of the advertising dollars which were claimed by them once. It was done in part by aggregating as well as linking to the articles. It has been said consistently by Google that it wishes to partner up with the business of media and also want to help where it is possible for the company. Google has also readily admitted that the worth of the services of the company has much to do with the quality of the content. A handful of initiatives have been rolled out by the company for the sake of helping the publishers to make some more money over the internet.

Chris Gaither – the spokesman of Google has said that the company had no specific way to announce currently about the Newspass, but the executives of Google have much the references to this kind of payment system in the past times. During the month of December, David Drummond, who is the chief legal officer has said during the World Newspaper Congress that they are greatly exploring the solutions related to technology which would be helping the publishers with some of the logistical problems that are in charging for the whole content like the billing systems that are used for the subscriptions or for the micropayments.
