    5 Actionable Tips to Get Your Website Added to Google News

    You can get thousands of clicks to your site from Google News.

    And, you don’t even have to be a journalist.

    Smart bloggers, news publishers, and digital content marketers are already tapping into this huge resource for targeted traffic and better search engine visibility.

    Google News is reserved for sites and blogs that publish timely, topical articles. You don’t necessarily need to be a news site but if you are consistently posting newsworthy content it’s possible to get accepted.

      Getting your website added to Google News can significantly boost visibility and credibility. Here are five actionable tips to help you achieve that:
      1. Publish High-Quality Content: Google News prioritizes credible and original content. Ensure your articles are well-written, timely, and informative. Aim for journalistic standards with clear attribution, sources, and accuracy.
      2. Optimize for Google News Guidelines:
        • Structured Data: Implement structured data markup such as Schema.org Article markup to help Google understand your content better.
        • Meta Tags: Use meta tags like <meta name="news_keywords" content="keyword1, keyword2"> to highlight relevant keywords related to your content.
        • URL Structure: Ensure your URLs are permanent and unique for each article, and avoid using parameters or session IDs.
      3. Focus on News Topics: Google News favors sites that focus on news topics rather than general content. If your site covers a specific niche or industry news consistently, it increases your chances of being accepted.
      4. Ensure Technical Compliance:
        • Mobile-Friendly: Your website should be responsive and optimized for mobile devices.
        • Page Speed: Improve loading times as faster sites tend to perform better in search results.
        • Secure Connection: Use HTTPS to ensure secure browsing, which is now a standard requirement for all websites.
      5. Submit Your Site to Google News:
        • Google Publisher Center: Use the Google Publisher Center to manage your publication’s information, check the status of inclusion, and fix any issues.
        • Google News Publisher Help: Refer to Google’s guidelines and resources for publishers to understand the requirements and best practices for inclusion in Google News.
