Requirements for site structure

Permanent section pages

If the URLs of your main news sections change on a daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly basis, we may not be able to include your site in Google News. Non-permanent URLs prevent us from crawling your new content, as we're unable to detect the most current URL to be crawled. Our automated crawler is best able to crawl sites when the URLs of their main news sections do not change. If after your site has been accepted into Google News your main news section changes, update our record of your section URLs within the Google News Publisher Center.
