Inclusion in Google News- Sad but True
I am sure many people out there have tried to get included in Google News. We have been successful in getting multiple websites included in Google news. Recently we have been working fairly hard to get busy blogging. We decided to attempt to get SEO Moves included in Google news. Just for fun I am going to include the thread of conversation I have had with the people at Google News:
#3- Google News Replied:
Thank you for your note.
We reviewed your site and are unable to include it in Google News at this time. We currently only include sites with news articles that provide timely reporting on recent events. This means we don’t include informational and how-to articles, classified ads, job postings, fictitious content, event announcements or advice columns.”
#4- SEO Moves Reply Back:
In looking at a search today for search engine optimization- the results include a bunch of posts from ZDnet (screen capture included). These posts are really along the lines of what we post, but written by one man who proclaims himself to “NOT” be an SEO expert?
I wish you would reconsider our inclusion as we are really giving people strong real time advice, and tips. 100% white hat information and we are working hard to help the small and medium size businesses succeed online.”
#5- Google News Reply:
Thank you for your reply and for providing us with this additional information about your site. As we previously mentioned, the articles in Google News report on recent events. We currently don’t include informational and how-to articles, classified ads, fictitious content, job postings, event announcements, or advice columns.
Thanks for your interest in Google News.
