Make it easy to get from Google News to Google News Archive

I really love the Google News Archive Search. It is a pity that it is hard to get to from Google News. If I am doing a Google News search and I want to go back in time into the archive, I'd like to be able to do that with one click. Particularly if I'm already in the search results. For example, if I search for my company name (Netconcepts), there is a link to search blogs and a link to create an email alert, but no link to search Google News archive for "netconcepts". Please add that.

While you're at it, can you add the Google News Archive Search to my search history? :-)

Oops, you need to redirect

Nothing scares web visitors like a security warning message when visiting a web site, particularly if that web site holds your financial records. Imagine my surprise when I went to and after getting redirected to I get a security warning that the Security Certificate is not valid! Here's what visitors see when using Safari:

and when using Firefox for the Mac:

Google, I suggest you guys fix your redirect to point to instead. And it probably wouldn't hurt to spring the few hundred bucks for a security certificate for too! ;-)

This issue probably isn't isolated to just the AdSense site, so it would be worthwhile to check all your sites for this issue.
