Requirements for site structure

Language and encoding guidelines

This article explains some guidelines for content languages and encoding your site.

Language

Google News doesn’t include sites with articles that display more than one language within the text of the article. Our system can have trouble crawling content that contains multiple languages. 

If your site is available in multiple languages, submit a separate request for each different language version of your site that you’d like us to include in Google News.

Review the supported languages and regions.

Encode your site

For best results, encode your site in UTF-8. For more information on encoding, visit www.w3.org.
