Google News is the new SEO trend that is sweeping the web. Just like submitting your website to the usual organic version of search engines, you can also submit your website to Google News. Once approved, your blogs or articles will be syndicated by Google, sending your content across the web.
How amazing is that? With this technique, you can instantly jump ahead of other indexed websites with related keywords because you will appear in the news area instead. Just like most things, when good things happen, people will abuse it and before you know it, everyone has to pay the price for a few people’s abuse. So if you try to spam it with your favorite affiliate links then you will not get approved. Keep that in mind.
The concept is that submissions to Google News should be “news”. Many abusers try to post reviews about their affiliate program which ruins it for everyone else. Post real news and before you know it, your website will be sending out information to the entire web which will attract thousands back to your website.
To submit a website, this is what you do:
Build a website that is professional and news related. Using WordPress for such a venture is normally a good idea and there are a ton of good news related themes that are free to use. Set up major categories that are relative to news and make sure you do not have any outgoing, external links.
Think “news” and make sure your posts look like news articles with pictures and all. get about a hundred or so articles dated over the course of several months.
Do you submission to Google and wait for them to approve your website.
When your site has been approved, try to stay away from affiliate links but feel free to monetize it with networks like AdSense. Once you have earned a good reputation, you can slide a few CPA offers in as well.
Patience is a virtue and you should be mindful of that while building your news site. This is a gradual concept and should not be done over night. Do not forget to get some quality backlinks for your site as well. This will add to the authenticity of your site.
