I have created publisher center account. account is verified and I can see my articles in dashboard also. But I am trying to get listed in Google News and non of my article is coming in Google News. What should I do to get in Google News?
Please share valuable feedback on this.
Hope you are following guidelines and using,
- Google News Sitemap
- News Article Schema
- Robots.txt to allow Googlebot-news
For more information,
The News Article Schema should be updated on every news article pages.
Thank you so much sir for your quick response.
One more last question, is any difference between News Article Schema & Article Schema?
Article schema covers news articles too but if you are defining your article as news then NewsArticle schema should be used. For more,
To get listed in Google News, your website must meet specific criteria including: original reporting, regular updates, credibility, and overall content quality. Apply for inclusion in Google News using the News Publisher Center and make sure your site is optimized with accurate headlines, meta tags, and structured data. Adhere to Google's content policies and guidelines to maintain your status in Google News.
I have more the 1000 pages in website. So, do I need to create the news sitemap in groups? If yes, then which url should I update into the search console & into the robots.txt file?
In 1 news sitemap you can use all 1000 URLs, no need of multiple sitemaps for this large number of URLs. In robots.txt file you just need to allow the news bot to crawl. Please check the URL provided for more details.
