Reed and Google in talks to share revenue
Source: The Observer

Google is “in talks” with massive scientific publisher Reed Elsevier.

Under discussion is a revenue sharing plan that would see Reed Elsevier get a small payment for every visitor delivered to a Reed site.

>From the article, “Google directs its users to Reed’s sites, but Reed does not now receive a share of the revenue generated by the traffic.

Google has similar revenue-sharing arrangements with other companies, but a deal with Reed would be one of the biggest of its kind. Reed could come to similar agreements with Yahoo and Microsoft.”
