An update on publication pages

Date published: April 25, 2024

Starting today, publishers can no longer add publications to the Publisher Center. We are making this change as part of a transition to roll out automatically created publication pages later this year.

What’s next for publication pages?

By adding a publication to Publisher Center, publishers were able to manually create a source page for users to follow. Publishers with manually created publication pages will continue to have access to customization features until later this year, when pages will shift to being automatically created. Users will continue to be able to follow their favorite publications.

What does this mean for appearing in Google News and news surfaces?

Content from publishers that adheres to our content policies is automatically eligible for consideration in Google News and across News surfaces.

Having a publication in the Publisher Center does not guarantee its content will appear across Google surfaces. Our systems automatically identify and rank eligible content based on factors like relevance, prominence, authoritativeness, freshness, location, and language.

New Publisher Center

Google launched a new Publisher Center interface to help publishers easily manage how their content appears across Google News surfaces. Read more on this FAQ page and our blog post.
