Newsquest's 132 local newspaper sites will embed a price comparison service within channels such as cars and health.

The technology will be provided by Beatthatquote.com, but the service will be branded by Newsquest.

It marks the first time the publisher of 300 titles has had a dedicated and integrated finance partner, and is the latest in a series of moves to invest in services provided by its local sites.

It comes on the back of owner Gannett announcing group ad revenue was down 24% year on year for Q3, last month.

According to Nielsen, BeatThatQuote.com was the UK's fastest-growing web site in 2007, beating Facebook into second place.
