Google's Print Ads program, which lets companies use its Web-based interface to buy ad space in U.S. newspapers, must be going well. The search company is opening the service up to all of its U.S.-based AdWords marketers.
Google launched Print Ads in November as part of a test involving 50 newspapers and a "small group" of advertisers. Now, more than 225 newspapers with a combined circulation of nearly 30 million are involved, as well as potentially tens of thousands of Google advertisers.
Separately, Google says it has renewed its agreement to provide search and contextually targeted advertising to the Washington Post's online subsidiary, Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive, which includes Slate, Newsweek.com and Washingtonpost.com.
