Is Google News a big traffic source?

 9:56 pm on Jun 7, 2010 (gmt 0)

Our blog was accepted into Google news, do you think we'll get any traffic from it?

It can be - but a lot is going to depend on the qualities of your specific site. If you write your own unique articles, and they're on very timely and newsworthy topics, then you've got a chance of being clustered in with the right News Search results to get traffic. If you're more in a side niche, then probably "not so much".

One important thing to consider with Google News:

Google News is a common source of the autobots on Twitter (and there are many) -- those who get RSS feeds and automatically posts them either on their blog and their Twitter feeds. So once you get into Google News, your Tweetmeme counter can really rack up in number of tweets. With recent discussions of new sites getting links from Twitter, this can be a good thing

sounds good, when they tweet the articles, do they link to the exact article on my site correct?

In our case, out of 100 tweets of the article, about 98 are linked directly to my site. Of course, just because somebody tweeted it doesn't mean their tweet can bring you traffic.

wonder if all that linking adds to any kind of pagerank juice?
