Google capitalizes on online music

Google search for music

Google is on surging digital music interest, creating a a results page tailored to music for related searches. PC Pro reports that "Google is now offering a single box at the top of a results page that it has decided is about music. Clicking on a link will give you a standard list of links to official pages and fan sites, and news and pictures for the News and Images indexes. However, the bulk of the page is given over to a discography and reviews of the artist's albums and, surprise, surprise, where to buy the records online culled from the Froogle service." The report, however, points out that Yahoo! has been doing the same with music-related search for some time now: "Similarly Yahoo! offers its 'shortcuts' which are also collections of links. Often, in the case of musicians this will be a link to Yahoo! Music which will not only offer background information but also offer to sell selected downloads."
