I'm currently taking care of the daily news writing needs of dozens of Google News-approved websites. I don't set up the sites. I am only in-charge of the content. My clients told me that Google News-approved websites are a good source of backlinks and traffic. Their only challenge prior to hiring me was consistency in posting time-sensitive and news-worthy articles. Is there anyone in here who's into Google News websites, too? May I ask what other challenges you've been facing with not only when it comes to site maintenance but also with the approval process itself? Thank you for your comments.
