Share Google News on your website

This article explains how Google News RSS feeds work, how to set one up and attribute it correctly, and why we would block a feed. In addition to sharing your content via Google News, you can also use our content on your websites. 

How it works

You can make non-commercial use of Google's RSS feeds and a feed reader to get a list of stories from a section on Google News. This feature only works on desktop computers.

Google News RSS feeds are available in RSS 2.0 format.

Set up a Google News RSS feed

To set up a Google News RSS feed, follow the steps below:

  1. On a computer, go to news.google.com.
  2. Select a news section like Sports, Business, or a custom section.
  3. At the bottom of the page, click RSS. The code for the feed appears.
  4. In your address bar, copy the URL to your feed reader.

To change how many times you get updates, check the feed reader you currently use.

Attribute RSS feeds correctly

If you add Google News feeds onto your website, read Google’s Terms of Service. Then, make sure you do the following:

  • Attribute the feeds to Google News
  • Attribute each news item to its publisher, using the name that appears in the Google News feed
  • Include a link to the group of related stories for each news item, using the link provided in the Google News feed
  • Mention the search terms used to create the RSS feed

Why Google might block an RSS feed

Sometimes, Google News blocks a feed. That could happen if you’re doing any of the following:

  • Using Google News feeds for profit or to increase traffic to your site
  • Reformatting news results to look like you’ve created them
  • Changing, editing, or creating works based on content from Google News
