Brazil?s Google News Boycott Reportedly Only Drops Traffic 5%. Oof.
?The fact is, Google News is absolutely irrelevant in Brazil,? said Carlos M�ller, communications advisor for National Association of Newspapers in Brazil (AJN), after a widespread boycott of Google's popular news aggregator. Many empires, from News Corp to the entire country of France, have threatened to pull of Google because the search giant doesn't compensate them for displaying snippets of their content, but none have yet to follow through out of the fear of boycotting the world's most popular website. The AJN reports that Brazilian newspaper have seen a meager 5% drop in traffic, which not only justifies their own protest but could inspire a mass revolt online.
