Add a Google News sitemap

A sitemap contains detailed information about specific types of content on your site. Google News sitemap lets you control which content you submit to Google News. If you already have a website sitemap, we recommend that you create a separate sitemap for news content.

With a Google News sitemap, you can help Google News:

  • Discover news articles faster: Sitemaps allow Google News to quickly find news articles on your site. 
  • Crawl and index all news articles: Sitemaps help the crawler discover news hubs and article URLs, which improves content coverage.
