Want to leverage the benefit of being selected by the news services or make your blog ready for Google news? The first thing you need to do is preparing the blog for submission.
First of all, explore the Google news if you are new to it. The traditional sources of news will provide you with article of news. Google does not purchase newspapers or wander out to get news. A RSS feed is there in all the sources of news. Therefore Google news picks the feed as and when a news article is posted. If you want Google to pick the news than RSS feed is the main requirement of the site.
It is not a coincidence to get the news on Google and is important to submit the websites and blogs. It is important to make sure that the blog has information that is worthy to be called as news and this serves to be the basis of successful submission. Here are the tips to follow that will help make the blog ready for Google news:
Writing stuff identification:
If the about us page is there then this task is simple. It is important to assure that the page name is about us and not any other variation. This is important since credentials and name help to identify the author of blog.
Contact us page is must:
If is desired to be anonymous and still become the news item then it is important to avoid the Google news. Do not offer your front door’s map to Google. Instead, provide it with the location of state. This is must for the bloggers having concerns of privacy.
Give the news category a name:
When the news is submitted to Google news, it will ask the web address where the publication of the stories is done. This might not be the category in which all the blog posts are published by you. But still you can process the category name as news. This will serve to be the best platform where things such as webinar details, announcements, press releases etc. could be posted. It is important to qualify the blogs as news in case it is already started. This step is important prior to the step for Google news.
Site map is must:
This is also an important step. Google site map is must. Web structure is all that lies at the base of Google and it appreciates this. For figuring out the site structure, XML site maps are something that are loved by Google. Plugins are there in case blogging software like WordPress etc. are used by you.
These are the points that will help you to make the blog post Google ready and make Google pick the post as news.
