    I run a very large gaming website, which is actually considered an authority site for a particular game. Our competitors recently had their site into Google News, a site which is the same as ours in terms of the content we cover, similar site layout, similar DA/PA, TF etc.

    We're looking to hire someone to take us through the steps and ensure we have met the requirements listed by Google to get into Google news.

    It was easier before than it is now to get into google news. When did your competitor get included?

    Don't you just add it to Google news and they accept you or they don't, going off the quality of your blog.

    Sitemap, apparently higher chance if you have authors real life pics, and a bunch of other stuff gives you more chance in getting accepted.

    I can't be 100% sure about this, and I'm probably wrong. I was refused from one place because I didn't have dates in my URLs. I'm not too sure if it was Google though.

    Very strange, all the sites in my niche that are in Google News don't have dates in their URLs.
