    Hi guys,

    The website I'm working on has been accepted into Google News, I was going to work on it for 6 months then apply but I thought I may aswel do it now and if I get declined I may get pointers for when I apply later. Google approved it within a day or two and now it has just started getting added to news SERPS.

    Anyone got any pointers on how to make the most out of it? It's a gambling related news website and appears at the minute "Neutral" and only runs Adsense. I got approved yesterday and I've already seen a large increase in traffic.

    Working on a website right now, which will hopefully pass Google News test. Could you PM me the link of your website so I could get a feel for this? Thanks!

    Wondering about this as well. It should be against the Adsense rules right?

    With adsense you'll convert only fraction of the traffic, because the ads will be shown only to those visitors whose country is in the "gambling white list".

    With bookmakers/casinos you'll have a problem as well. You cant link to gambling sites and use adsense, this is against adsense TOS as far as I remember. Additionally, its probably going to be hard to get sign-ups from news type of website.

    Try clickbank?

    Question I have is, what did you do to get into Google News? How many posts over how long a period of time? Was it rewritten content or new content? Thanks.
