NEW YORK, Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on its commitment to deliver the sources that influence business, Factiva has expanded its aggregated content to offer more global sources, blogs and images. In the last year, Factiva's content has increased by more than 20 percent, totaling more than 35,000 sources and furthering its position as one of the largest global digital business aggregators and archives. The new sources comprise 1,500 licensed publications, 1,600 websites, nearly 8,000 blogs and more than 1.2 million images, covering 26 languages.
"As a global news organization, we understand the sources that matter; these content additions provide our customers with the most pertinent market expertise and local intelligence," said Factiva's content guru, Anthony Capon, vice president of content, Dow Jones & Company.
"This is business search at its best," said David Chivers, vice president of product, Dow Jones & Company. "Factiva's traditional and social content collection offers the right mix of credible regional, national and global business news and information, and 60 percent of its key sources are not accessible via common search engines.
