Accessible content

Our crawler needs to be able to access your site in order to include your content in Google News. Make sure the directories that host your articles are not blocked by a robots.txt file and that metatags or header specifications do not block access to your article links. Google News crawls with the same robot as Google Web Search, the user-agent Googlebot.

Read Block access to content on your site if you believe your site's robots.txt file, meta tags, or HTML header specifications may be blocking our crawler from accessing your content.
