How To Get Listed In Google News

If you are thinking about starting a content site then you should really consider having a site dedicated to bringing the latest news in your field. The pentacle of many news sites is to be listed in Google News. Once you are listed in Google News you will receive a flood of traffic with thousands of visitors. This subject is not talked about too much but there are special requirements to be listed in Google News which I will be going over in this article.

Rule 1) About Your Content: You must have unique original material on your site. You can not have any content that is a duplicate of another site.

Rule 2) About Your Articles: You must have multiple authors and have at least 2 new articles a day on your site. Make sure you have quality articles of at least 300 words each. Also it is good to include images and even video at times with every article.

Rule 3) About Your Website: Your website must look professional. It is very important that it doesn’t look like you run the site by yourself but that you have an organization or company. Make sure that your policy and about us page reflect that too. You can not host your news site on a blog platform. You must use a CMS or content management system because that is what Google prefers for news.

Rule 4) About Your URLs: Make sure your URLs are search engine friendly. Don’t have any funny characters in them like question marks and such. Make sure that each article has a specific URL. Your article URLs should end with 3 digits and not 4 or 2 digits. I know this sounds strict but Google prefers it that way. Also make sure that the title tags for your article URLs is the same as the article title.

Rule 5) About Your Authority: Google wants to see that you already have some authority before they list you in their news search. So make sure that you have at least 100 articles and are receiving some heavy traffic before you submit your site to them.

I know that these requirements might be hard to follow but the pay off is well worth it. Once you set yourself up as a quality news site you can monetize it by offering advertising or offering paid content. If you follow these rules you have a very good chance of getting accepted into Google News. You can submit your site to Google News by Clicking Here. I hope this article has helped you and thanks for reading.

Если врач знает название вашей болезни, это еще не значит, что он знает что это такое. Никогда не приписывай человеческой зловредности того, что можно объяснить обыкновенной глупостью. Человек может долго жить на деньги которые он ждет. Реальность это иллюзия вызываемая отсутствием алкоголя. Женщины едят за разговорами, мужчины едят заедой.

I have one question about the Google news service. I have been trying to get listed without any luck as of yet. I am a one man operation and really don't want anyone else writing the articles. It is a travel advisory service. But what alarms me about the news service is the number of publishers that have been added and all it is - is a method for the publisher to sell a subsription. They have a nice headline, it comes up in my news alert, and when I arrive the article is for sale as a subscription. I did not think this was the purpose of Google news service. All of my headlines come up in Google but not in the news service and they are all news stories.
