Google Finance Wants Your Opinion

The Google Finance group plans to take an active role in answering questions on its blog, but only for a couple of days.

First things first: Thursday is not July 21st, as Katie Jacobs Stanton, group product manager for Google Finance wrote on their latest blog post. As any Harry Potter fan can tell you, the 21st is Saturday, two agonizing days away from Thursday.

Maybe she was just wishing for the official arrival of Book 7 to happen faster. I can relate to that.

Stanton has a modest proposal to occupy a little of the typical Google Finance user’s time. She and her team plan to participate very interactively with commenters on the Finance blog through Thursday morning:

We will start reviewing and responding to all comments (except comments that are off-topic!) immediately and will respond in a meta-post on Thursday, July 21st around 9am PST. If there are more submissions than we can comfortably answer in a single post, we’ll carry over the selected questions to Friday and answer them then.

It’s a good time to sound off with suggestions or comments (politely, folks, there’s enough strife in the world) about Google Finance. The service added several features since its debut, and provides a central location for plenty of stock information.

The world of online finance has been dominated by Yahoo’s service for years. It looks like Google’s team wants to find a way into making its Finance a more attractive product. Also, financial advertising can be very lucrative. Google’s interest in improving Finance may be proposed with one eye on a richly advertised financial future.

      No problem, it gave me a nice lead.

      For some time I have been trying to contact the right person to speak to at Google Finance. Perhaps you will be able to help. My company collects and indexes news issued by listed companies worldwide.  Some time ago I compared the news that we had on companies with that on Google Finance. There were many gaps in the Google company news that we could provide.  We do not yet have complete coverage of all 35,000+ listed companies worldwide, but we are working towards that goal. I would like to speak to someone at Google about this. If you are not that person, perhaps you could point me in the right direction.
