Removing content from Google News

Generally we only remove content from Google News following notification from the appropriate publisher informing our team that they have removed this content from their site, or if publications fail to follow our quality or general guidelines. If you find content in Google News that is inaccurate or outdated, we encourage you to contact the publisher of this content directly to have it removed from their site.

We'd like to know if articles are creating a bad experience for our users. If you find a broken link to an article or encounter content that is offensive or inappropriate for Google News, please let our team know.

Additionally, if you believe that a site is violating Google News' quality guidelines for spam content, please let us know by filing a spam report. Google News prefers developing scalable and automated solutions to problems, so we attempt to minimize hand-to-hand spam fighting. While we may not take action in response to every report, spam reports are prioritized based on user impact, and in some cases may lead to complete removal of a spammy site from Google's News results.

If you feel your copyrights are being violated by any content included in Google News, please review our policy on alleged copyright infringement. If you feel your other legal rights are being violated, please file a report here.

For publishers with sites included in Google News, please refer to this article on removing content from Google News.
