    Its possible. I've seen blogs listed there. I've even seen blogs I consider autoblogs or aggregate sites listed in GN. You can read about how its done at http://www.google.com/support/news_pub/?hl=en

    I'm just not sure what is the trick to getting them to include your content. I don't know exactly what they want and I'm sure you will need a decent whitehat site( which I have) to get listed. I was just looking for tips with what to put in the application as I'm not sure you will get more than a single shot at getting one included.

    You have to be able to write well, have a good announcement, and be able to follow the Press Release "style" of writing.

    Getting your press releases in Google News is VERY good for boosting your position in the SERPs.

    Thanks Wiz, that was what I was thinking was going to be needed. I have a decent site here which fits all their guidelines with the exception of apparent multiple writers and editors. I'll give it a shot and see what happens.

    Here is a product that will better inform you as to how to go about creating and submitting Press releases. It is called "Press Release Fire" by Brad Callen.

    Wiz you are definitely the man. I was just looking over at PRWeb and thinking of releasing a couple of press releases for this site to help me out some more with my rankings.

    Are we talking about getting in Google News as a news item or as a news submission site that will get your articles listed every time you write one? Just getting listed in the news is as simple as writing a decent press release. I do it for all my sites...hell it only takes like 15 minutes and you'll almost be be on the front page of Google News for your keywords within an hour.

    I want the whole thing in there not just a single press release. Don't know if I'll be able to pull it off, but I'm gonna try.

    dynamicvb,

    I think there are some scripts around for creating a press release submission site. You might be able to do something with that...

    I'm just going to fix the problems they told me about and then resubmit in a few weeks. This site deserves to be in the index as it better than some of the ones there. They pretty much told me I just needed to fix the issues above.

    One thing I will need to find is a script or the code to change the author on various posts. I don't want to have to do it manually so maybe I can figure out a way to do it with a script or SQL query.

    There's a guy over on DP in the BST section selling PR content. $35 for the article and guaranteed appearence. This would probably save some time on writing the content yourself if it helps. I haven't seen anyone on this forum offering that service but I am pretty sure that if someone did offer it that it would go down well.
