Page layout guidelines

In order to make sure we only crawl your news articles, Google News has several requirements for individual article pages. Make sure you review our technical guidelines for individual article pages, and confirm the following:

  • Your articles' URLs are unique and permanent
  • Your articles' headlines and publication times are easily identifiable to our automated crawler
  • Your articles’ pages use HTML format and the body text is not embedded in JavaScript
