Univision.Com And Google Partner To Bring Search Services to Nation’s Most Visited Spanish-Language Website
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. and NEW YORK – July 28, 2005 – Univision Online, Inc., the interactive division of Univision Communications Inc. (NYSE: UVN), today announced that it has entered into multi-year partnership with Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG). The partnership combines the power of the most visited Spanish-language website with an industry leader in search technology and advertising.
Through the partnership with Google, visitors to Univision.com will now receive more relevant, comprehensive, and timely Spanish-language search results optimized for quick delivery in a user-friendly environment. The relationship also connects Univision.com users with more products and services online through targeted advertisements on the search and content pages of the website.
