Comcast Unhappy with Google Search Deal
Comcast is negotiating with Microsoft to replace Google as its search portal technology partner, reports the Wall Street Journal. Comcast, which thinks it should get a larger search ad rev share, isn't happy about the terms of the deal, which is set to expire at the end of this year. Comcast.net gets about 15 million visitors a month, and is one of the biggest non-Google sources of search queries handled by Google.
The WSJ also reported recently that Google was in negotiations with Comcast to handle some of the network's television advertising.
