    When I search a topic related to my niche I notice a site which shows up in Google news results. How do I get my site to show up there? Google always classifies it as blog posts. How can I make it show in the news results like other sites?

    Well there are a few ways. The easiest and I have done this before is google: free press releases

    Use a few of the services - you don't have to pay a dime. Within 24 hours you will see your PR in google news. I suggest signing up for like 3 of them at first. PrLog works good.

    After that your good to go.

    You need to make a request to Google. Use this submission form:
    Code:
    http://www.google.com/support/news_pub/bin/request.py
    News publishers must make an explicit request for inclusion in Google News. Though Google News is published by an algorithm, the decision to include a particular website as a source in Google News is made by human beings, Google News' Daniel Meredith said.

    "What do we look for?" asked Meredith. Four things, he replied:

    1. Original content
    2. Multiple authors
    3. Proper attribution
    4. Response time

    The first and third points should not be issues for any experienced journalist. But the second point would be of obvious concern to many bloggers and independent publishers. Great original content from a single talented writer is not enough to get Google's blessing.

    If you want the traffic the Google News can deliver, consider forging a partnership with other writers or finding ways to elicit high-quality reader-submitted content that can add additional bylines to the front page of your site.

    On the fourth point, Meredith was referring to server response time. Google's news bots are looking for pages that they can index swiftly, and that will load quickly for readers, too.

    News publishers should take frequent looks at their hosting situation, both to make sure that their servers are tuned for optimum day-to-day performance, as well as having the ability to handle a sudden traffic surge from a major breaking news event.

    Publishers using custom-built content management tools need to consider the added factor of code efficiency, especially code bloat, as they add and modify their system's tools. That neat new "share this link" function might look nice, but you have to be careful that it, or some other new widget, isn't slowing your pages' load times.

    Dude, all this info is available with a simple Google search. :)

    Do you think I could tell them I have multiple writers (which I do) but the posts are all listed under one name?

    Thanks. I saw really crappy sites in Google News results and I'm wondering if really humans approve them then what were they thinking. :D

    But I'm not a press release site. I don't want to have press releases on my site and confuse my readers. :)

    No, I don't think so. How would anyone know you have multiple authors then? Although technically you could mention that in your 'about page' but I've heard that Google News is pretty strict with the multiple authors requirement.

    Why not just include the different names for each author?
