Technical requirements

Google News is compiled by a computer algorithm that scans all the sites included in our system. In order for your content to be included in Google News, the layout and format of your site must be easy for our crawler to read and decipher. Additionally, we have certain restrictions in place to make sure our crawler only includes links to URLs that are actually news articles.

We ask that you review all of our guidelines before submitting your site for inclusion in Google News. Making sure your site conforms to all our technical requirements now will help prevent any issues with your site in the future.
