Appear in Google News

Google News can help you reach new audiences and attract avid news readers to your site. With Google News, users can:

  • Discover current events, world-wide news, and diverse content from different publishers.
  • Subscribe to specific news providers and topics.
  • Read content online or offline.
  • Bookmark and share articles.
  • Personalize content in the “For you” section.

How it works

Through a diverse set of features, Google News lets users learn about and engage with you. The Google News experience includes prominent branding and monetization opportunities, like advertising and streamlined subscription sales through Subscribe with Google.

You can use the Publisher Center tool to share your content with Google News by submitting RSS feeds, website URLs, or videos. To provide the best experience for readers, you can choose between direct control and traffic using Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) or custom styling of feed-backed content.

Even if you don’t set up a publication in the Publisher Center, Google might find your site through our normal web crawl. If you don't want to surface in Google News, you can block access to content on your sites without affecting your continued indexing and ranking in Google Search.

While you don’t need to sign up through the Publisher Center to be considered in Google News rankings, it does provide certain benefits:

  • Content and branding control: Design, brand, and customize your publication's sections and content in Google News.
  • Monetization opportunity: Publishers can use paywalls in Google News through Subscribe with Google.
  • Placement eligibility: Publications with business terms are eligible to be in the Newsstand section of the app in applicable countries and regions. 
    • Important: We do not guarantee placement. Publications are independently selected for Newsstand by our merchandising team based on promotional timing, quality of user experience, and relevance to promotional theme.

Important: The submission of a feed or a URL through the Publisher Center does not guarantee surfacing or ranking in Google News.
