How To Get Your Blog Posts & Website Listed In Google News

This is a guide on how to get your blog posts listed and found in the Google News section of the Google search.

To set all this up for an experienced person, it takes about 4 hours of work.  If you have no idea what you are doing, it’s a learning curve of about 2 weeks.

You have to have already set up your domain in Google Webmaster Tools, if you haven’t done that, see How To Setup Google Webmaster Tools. If you already have a domain setup in Google Webmaster Tools, go to step 3 below.

  1. Gmail Account – You must have a gmail account to setup Google Webmaster Tools
  2. Google Webmaster Tools – Submit your website to Google Webmaster Tools
  3. News Publisher Center – Go here and click ‘Request Inclusion in Google News’
  4. News Sitemap – You should have a News Sitemap setup in Google Webmaster Tools (I recommend the premium version of Yoast WordPress Plugin, for a lot of reasons)

It can take 1-3 weeks (usually less than 7 days) to have your Google news section get approved after a manual review. It must meet these Google News Quality Guidelines.
