Update the frequency of feed content

Content from the feed updates hourly unless the publication uses WebSub. With WebSub, updates happen instantly. Each feed section contains a timestamp for when the feed was last updated.

To manually trigger an update:

  1. Open Publisher Center.
  2. Select your publication.
  3. Click Google News.
  4. In the navigation menu, click Content settings.
  5. On the relevant section, click Refresh.

When you update your feed, fresh articles are fetched and rendered in your sections and you get a success message on the page. If the manual trigger is unsuccessful, you get an error message that there’s a failure to fetch fresh content from the feed.
