    Hi everyone,

    I have a website that is in Google News although the competition i am against always seems to outrank my articles meaning mine don't show high enough to display in search results.

    Just wondering if anyone knows any tips or tricks to rank higher in google news?

    Thanks,

    basic seo... same rules... If you don't mind sharing name of site in PM i can give you better feedback... I don't have site in Google News right now but I had it and it was good source for traffic... In start we faced similar problem but later on we were getting better exposure... Also is it news or press release or both... If News generic or niche specific...

    You can only do it in press release, normal news content can't be used for marketing which makes it tough to place links...

    They create news article style sites, then submit them for "Google News approval", and if approved, they are taken as a source for Google news in the topic, and syndicated by lots of sites which use Google news for content creation.

    LOL you beat me...:)

    It's little tough to get inside but not impossible... If you can create one good site based on their guidelines then you can also try...

    Another question, which only happened last week. My site which is listed in google news doesn't show in google results anymore. The articles we write are listed on top of the google news page but when you are on google search results it cannot be found at all. It seems it is penalised from search results, has anyone seen or read of this before?

    Not sure what is going on as the site would always show in search results until mid last week, was there a change to google news?

    It's a million dollar question, but yes, i have answer for that. Need to remember one thing - Google news is different and Google organic results is different. Doesn't required any SEO process to gain top in News. I have 2 sites in news from past 4 yrs and they are doing great with out seo.

    Start your title with your targeted keyword (must be in H1 tag) and content should be good enough to read for a user, (even start your content with the same keyword). Need to have image above the fold and use long tail keyword as alt. Use perfect navigation. Use synonyms in content for your targeted keyword, don't repeat same keyword more number of times.

    Few may have different opinions, but this is working out for me from long back
