Matt Cutt presents an interesting example of the Google News customization. It is amazing how much you can get from Google News by clicking a few buttons.
That’s the danger of personalized news–you get a great view of the bark on the trees, but you can lose the forest.
But if you want to look at the bark on my trees, click this link to see how I’ve personalized Google News. I’ve got sections for Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask Jeeves, plus a section for Search Engine Optimization.Although for the SEO section, I had to add “-mets -jae” to the query; evidently there’s some baseball pitcher with the name “Seo.” Baseball again, geez; when will people learn that basketball and maybe soccer are where the action is?
