From Lost Remote discussing the Google News homepage: Google News not much of a hit
I use GN quite a bit - and am generally a big fan. But its home screen never gets my attention, I only use the search function to hit up major keywords each day.
Duh huh! That's what 80%+ of the people do with content centric Web sites. The homepage has become completely irrelevant and totally unnecessary: Searchable wads of content: Pulling the plug on the Web site
Google should set an example and take the Google News landing page down. It could serve as a good example for how Google Knol will work, and demonstrate to authors that they don't need a "web site"in order to be found.
