news.google.com takes news from many sources, i have suggested them our site with nearly 25 news posted everyday in a particular area.
But i have not received any confirmation about inclusion.
Can anyone give tips on some criteria they use to judge the news sources.
I think you missed out something, i said i have suggested twice to them before and they even reply me that they will review my site, but after that nothing happens.
I am looking for some tips on quality of sites to get into google news. While we are providing latest news and news are updated everyday three times, they are not allowiing us in.
But a few things to make sure:
Follow those and you should be alright I think.
Some good tips from Sid; I wonder how many submissions they get. Presumably either too many to review them all or too many to give feedback on submissions?
Ya, seeming they have 4000 sources or more - and they don't yet have a proper submission form (which would make it easier for some publications; especially international ones) - they must have reps solely focused on reviewing submissions.
The rep that I got in contact with was pretty friendly overall. They had a few problems setting up the bot to understand our feed though, as what I was using wasn't a news software and the Google News Bot would often just index the "Printer Friendly" versions instead of the archived; but they got it resolved within time and all was good.
yes SID, its mine own source, i think we are capable of writing 20 news everyday on our own.
And SID, are we required to have RSS feed to get the things in correct manner, i mean i haven't still made any RSS feeds.
And CMPL, i think you have quite overload of work as an admin, and its a great approach of yours to help ppl out here, and HUMANS MAKE MISTAKES, ITS COMMON.
They mentioned it in an e-mail, but one can also notice it by browsing some their categories or making queries -- it's very rare, more like impossible, that you notice a blog.
