    Hello,

    I'm not sure if this goes here but I'd like to know, what's the fastest way of getting your blog into Google News? Or something similar?

    As far as I can tell, there's no quick way.

    I submitted a blog site to Google News that ticked all of their checkboxes. It was a news site, had full contact details showing, had several writers, was updated daily with three or four new posts, and had good-quality unique content. It also ranked well.

    They turned me down flat - no explanation, as is the case with Google - and I've heard nothing from them since.

    In the meantime, my competitor - who has one writer, fairly poor content, and no contact details showing on site - got in without a problem.

    I think its down to the luck of the draw :/

    I use google alerts on some daily topics and I wonder how some stuff gets in my "official" listings too!

    The fastest and best chance of getting in would be to have exactly what what RetroOne set out. Plus do a news release via marketwire or businesswire PR services AND use the distribution services offered. Having your news distributed it will go out across a $hit load of news websites including all the top sites. Also it will slide across a ton of writers desks at all the news firms. The visability is great and hopefully a writer from NYtimes or any big firm will put a spin on it and write more. If this happens G news has no option but to include you.
