How to Attempt to Get Included in Google News

SUMMARY: No summary available.
Are your headlines showing up in Google News? If this latest Google launch has even a quarter of the success that the main Google site does, it could become a major traffic driver for news content sites.

The "about" page proudly states that Google News isn't created by humans. No editors, no writers, no managing editors. Nothing but
the non-journalist programmers who wrote the code Google robots use to surf 4,000+ news sites on the web and bring back headlines. Google hopes this non-human factor will make it more interesting than news selected by people. Unusual sources might get top spot and opposing views may jostle next to each other on the page. We'll see. My theory is the mighty buck will speak out at some point and paid placements will end up taking the lead.

Anyway, if you think your site should be included in their sweep, email your info to Google notes,
"While we can't guarantee that we will add all sources that are recommended, we will review all the suggestions we receive." Go ahead, flood their inbox!
