How do I update source details?

First, open your news source in the Google News Publisher Center. To the right of your source name and URL, click Details.

You can then make the following edits:

Update site name. Before doing so, please review our site naming guidelines. Note that failure to follow these guidelines may be interpreted as an attempt to deceive or manipulate our system and could affect your sites' inclusion status in Google News.

Add or edit your Google+ Page URL. We may use publicly available information from your Google+ page to deliver a better news experience and to better surface your content. Add your Google+ page URL here to tie your publication's Google+ account to our record of your news source. Note that your Google+ URL should be of the format https://plus.google.com/+ExampleSite or https:plus.google.com/[account digits].

Add or edit source labels (e.g., "blog"). Apply labels to your source only if they are applicable to all the sections in your source. See full description of what each source label means here.

After you have edited your source details, click Save to save your changes.
