Not for me. Please let us know if you receive reply from Google.

Seems for me that if I try search from scratch, I have to start from google.co.uk, and no news results are found. google.com cannot be accessed from the UK, and I presume not from Denmark either. If I use one of the links above, I can search from within google.com, and I can get the newspaper archives to appear in the news results.

Just found this site for small town Texas newspapers. Already finding Amarillo territory spot shows from the 1970s.

Every time Newspaper Archive upgrade their site, they fuck the whole thing up. If I try two searches in a row, it brings to a facebook log in screen and I have to log out and log in to get another search done. It was perfectly fine way it was.

Edit:

I'll admit, the pages load a lot faster now.

After logging in for a third time, it seems to be working okay now.

Has anyone been using Newspaper Archive recently? They continue to add thousands of new newspapers every day. I had presumed that their claims of this were BS, since very little new stuff ever appeared in searches. The browse new additions now works, and there are lots of new papers available.

Problem is that hardly any of it is indexed for searching. The Lubbock stuff I am adding at the moment, I;m having to search each newspaper. That's fine for weekly towns when you know the dates, but a bit trickier for researching spot shows.

I was having a look at Wichita Falls, TX which has just been added, and there are newspapers available for when the town was a weekly venue, but nothing appears when using search.

I had a chat with them on the help text chat and they weren't much help at all, said it all seemed to be working fine.

Funny that they now advertise "Hablamos EspaƱol" for their help facility. What they don't tell you is that they don't speak very good English.

As far as the search results go, I haven't noticed any difference, either. Didn't even realize they added that many papers.

If you click on Browse > Newly Added Content you get everything added in the past 90 days, and it is definitely being updated regularly. I don't see any of it in searches, though, and some of it is only available in Java, trying to load the PDF crashes my browser.

Kriss,

You're not imaging things.  I have the same issue with NA.  Searches don't work and browser crashes on PDFs

I signed up again because I had a prepaid gift card for the same amount as a 6-month subscription.  It's a great way to use those up, and if by some chance they failed to adhere to my desire to deactivate my account when the time's up, they can't get any more money from that card anyway.

In a few weeks after CAC I will probably have another run on Random Results when time allows.

Who here still has a NA sub. I was paying $29.95 every three months. I checked yesterday and found that they had upped this to $69.95 every three months without informing me. This is particularly shitty, seeing as they advertise $69.95 for six months now.

I emailed them about it, and they just cancelled my subscription. Funny, since there are a lot of online complaints about cancellation requests not being processed. This is the second time I've made a pricing inquiry, only to have my sub cancelled and the query not answered.

I still have a subscription. Paying $120 for a full year. The price went up 50% two years ago, but since then, there have been no changes.
