Set up your Publisher account

Publishers who sell their content can create, manage, and delete their accounts under a Publisher account.

Create an account

  1. Open Publisher Center.
  2. On the left panel, click Publisher account.
  3. Click New account.
  4. Add an account name.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Next to the account name, click the arrow and edit the information.
  7. Click Save.


Basic information

In this section, you should include:

  • Publisher name
  • Contact email
    • If you're going to manage the account in a professional capacity, we recommend that you don't use a personal Gmail account. Instead, you can set up a Google Account with an existing email address, such as a work email address. This setup helps ensure that the News team can contact your business in the future at an active email address.
  • Postal address
    • You must provide a current, valid postal address where you may be contacted. Be sure to keep these details up to date.

Privacy policy

Google News can display a link to your publication’s privacy policy after someone purchases your content.

To provide a link:

  1. Click Add privacy policy.
  2. Enter the link to your publication’s privacy policy
  3. Select the countries where you want to display the privacy policy.

To manage the link, next to the link, click Edit or click Remove  to delete it.


You might find some agreements that your organization has signed with Google.

Click on the name of an agreement to open a new browser window, and you're able to compile or edit some information related to your agreement, such as add a payment profile, payment method, and sales tax.
