    Curious to see if any members here have google news approved websites. I would love to hear about the process of getting approved, how long it takes, how frequently you update your site, etc. Thanks!

    I've read in here that it's really a handful to be behind a website like this...
    And it usually can't be just 1 person since the site needs to be updated quite often.

    You probably have to be as white hat as they come. Original clean content, news oriented, I doubt non news related websites will ever be included in Google News.

    I have see a few posts and threads in the last couple months about this. Even if someone gives you information (If takes months to re - apply, so make it count, for example), it will not be as good as the information already shared.

    Google news is hard to get into, requires a lot of work, and even more content. Site comes first, Google news second. You can make a good amount of money without getting into Google news, so I would suggest build a website viewers like, and makes money, then apply to Google news.

    Just my 0.02.

    I'm just exploring this topic - it looks like before You send request to G You have to have great content site, with at least 7 days everyday publishing. You can have many authors (guest?), but they have to have their own profile pages (best connected to G+)

    I also have technology news website and i didn't applied for a adsense yet cuz they might cancel me down. I think you should get first some traffic on website write 2-3 daily articles and then it might be applied

    It has been sold to someone else.

    If you do not do anything with the Google News website, You will earn nothing.

    I believe you must have 5 authors, with an authors page and all. Definitely have to post a bunch of news on a daily basis, I worked for a G news site and the one "author" I worked for published about 80 on a daily basis (this was a site for all types of news though, not just tech, business or politics, but everything)... and the others published about the same, if not more.

    So focus on building a great website and worry about that later down the road.

    Google News is a bit of a blackhole, that is very expensive to feed with varying results. I am very familiar with how it works. As for getting accepted, give it a go, the worst they can say is no.
    However, If you're not a "real" news site, don't set your hopes too high.

    The reality is that just because you get accepted into GN, that doesn't mean sh*t! Now you have to be able to crank out content fast, and have the publish current news on topics that are trending, otherwise few people will find you via GN. Simply put if it ain't trending, there is no traffic. Think of it like old timey newspapers (ya know those pieces of papers with little letters printed all over them), the first source with the story gets the readers. Now it's obviously far more complicated that that with GN, but that ranking factor still holds tru as one of the more important, among many others.

    So then let's just suppose that your riding goofy foot on a big trending wave of a topic, and your story is released right as all the bigger outlets are rolling theirs out, heck even beating several of them to the wave. Now if your lucky, you get placement on the home page closest to your topic, say sports. Your post will then rotate thru along with the notable authority brands like SI, CNN, Yahoo Sports etc... Then if you don't happen to be one of these brands your CTR will be less, of course helping to rotate you right off the home page. The same will eventually trickle down to the realtime coverage, and further you fall into the abyss of page 2 and beyond.

    That's not to say that you couldn't hit paydirt on GN, and when you do, it's similar to any other social buzz.. Cause it does happen every now and again.

    In the end, I would say just focus on creating useful content, if you're in GN, then it's just one more possible traffic outlet. Like all things G related, don't get be surprised when it doesn't reap huge rewards. Rewards are rewards not matter how big or small :cool:

    I could go on for days, but thought I thro in a few cents.
