Hi Humphrey, 
 
Generally that would suggest that the reviewers didn't feel that your site met the Google News Content Policies or didn't otherwise fit what they would consider to be a 'news' site. 
 
I have a video with my own tips for publishers applying for Google News here: https://goo.gl/v0XjPS  You might take a look at that to get a better feel for what, imo, reviewers are looking for when approving news sites.
 
Or, if you would like, you can post your url here on the forum and I or some of the other regulars here can provide our thoughts,

Hi Chris,

I visit this forum because, as you can guess, our site was rejected from Google news. After reading all the policies and advice. i don't understand why.

This is our new url : https://www.acteurspublics.fr/

Before we migrate on this url, we were on Google news with this domain : https://www.acteurspublics.com/

Do you know the reasons of this reject please ? I remain at your disposal to provide you more informations.
Thanks to you,

Adrien

Hi Adrien, 
 
If you take a look at the video I linked above, I think that will give you some good ideas about what reviewers are looking for when reviewing a site. 
 
I think it would be difficult for them to give your site a good evaluation when the articles are behind a paywall though. They are unlikely to subscribe to review your articles, even when the subscription is free. 
 
I'm not saying that's the only reason for the turn down, but it might have been a factor. There may be other things too, but since it's blocked, I haven't been able to see the articles either :)

Our site, https://fpmag.net/ was rejected and I am looking for feedback from Forum mebers who could give me some pointers. My Name is Melissa.

I thought the site was compliant but maybe someone here can help. 

If I am in the wrong channel please let me know. 

If someone else has experienced the same issue we could compare notes.

Hi Melissa,
 
I think there are probably several reasons for the turn down. 
 
One I noticed, most of the articles I'm looking at in your news section are on another site, rinj.press. So... even if FPmag.com was approved, the domain is what gets approved, so nothing from rinj.press would be included in Google News. (I know that does work ok through Producer/Newsstand, but that's a different setup)
 
Also, I don't see any original reporting, which is something that GN reviewers will be looking for when approving sites. It appears that most of the information in the articles is from other news sources. Tips and advice, such as how to be climate friendly, are not normally considered newsworthy in the way they are presented on your site. If you are interviewing someone that is newsworthy and they are providing tips - then you can quote or paraphrase what they have to say and report on that. Just an author providing tips off the top of their head - that would not be considered news. 
 
If the goal is to get approved as a Google News source, I would recommend prioritizing original reporting, tightening up on the news writing, having author bios, a good contact page, a good about page, and the other things I mention in the video I linked to above. 
 
This thread is going to get a little confusing - it gets a little messy when more than one site is being discussed on the same thread. 
 
If anyone else has questions about their site, please start a new thread specifically about your site. It makes it easier :) 
 
To start a new thread, head over the the front of the forum at: https://support.google.com/news/publisher-center/threads?hl=en and near the bottom of the page, click on the "ask now" button.
 
Adrien, Melissa, if you have more questions feel free to ether ask them here or start a new thread, you can do it either way, I just want to encourage anyone with additional sites to start a fresh thread :) 
 
Thanks, 
 
Chris

Saya ditolak lagi, saya coba lakukan semua perubahan tetapi tidak ada fungsi.


Tapi mengapa situs seperti ini diterima, er a tekno (.) Com hanya memiliki satu penulis aktif dan saya menerima konten yang diterima sebelumnya dan bukan yang asli.

Hi!

We submitted the form three times to GNews for https://prostoprosport.ru. Before the last submission of the form for adding to the GNews, we removed all traffic aggregators, all advertising from site, but we were again refused.

Please tell me what could be the reason?

Thanks,
Alex Liberman
