Review complete: Site rejected

Thanks for your interest in sharing your content via Google News. Unfortunately, we can’t include your website in Google News at this time.

Before you request inclusion again, review our content policies and technical guidelines. You can also visit the Google News Help Forum, where Google News employees and publishers often share helpful tips and expertise. Members of the forum may provide specific suggestions and feedback for your website.

Common reasons for rejection

While we can’t provide specific feedback for publishers seeking inclusion, here are the top 3 most common reasons for rejection:

  • Unoriginal content: Google News values original reporting. If your site shows syndicated content, make sure it’s properly attributed and makes up less than 50% of the content on your site. Advertising and other paid promotional material on your pages should not exceed your content.
  • Unclear site ownership or authorship: Google News strives to show readers news from transparent sites with verifiable author information. Make sure site ownership, mission, and contact information (such as email and physical addresses and phone numbers) are available. Articles should display author information.  

After a minimum of 60 days, you can submit your website for review again using the Request inclusion in Google News button next to your site in the Publisher Center.
