In this article, we will tell you how to sign up for Google News.
How to sign up for Google News?In the first step, Google will track the following data about your site:
- Does your site have original content?
- How often do you write?
- Are your site and articles professional?
- Is their information about your authors and content providers?
Join Google News Step by StepNow let's talk step by step on what we should do if you're ready. After passing each of these short titles, we will be ready for the registration phase.
The Right Headlines:After creating original content, what we need to pay attention to the first stage is the titles we enter in our articles and news. Your titles should be between 2-22 characters and include keywords.
Article Lengths:The second important part is that your articles are of sufficient length. Google News ignores news texts below 250 words as they are not sufficiently descriptive and detailed.
Multiple Authors:Just one person entering the contents of your web page will not make a good impression. For this reason, the fact that more than one author adds color to your site with its own comments will make you stand out among your competitors as well as in the eyes of Google News.
Creating an imprint page for your authors, showing the site owner, editorial director, advertising officers, the short biography of each author, the photo and the works published on your site will help end your application with approval.
It is also important that you show information such as the author and date of addition to your articles.
Plenty of Content and Advertising:Another thing that Google News is browsing is that your site is live. When you make an application, there should be a minimum of 100 articles on your site, and after that, you enter a minimum of 3 articles every day that will make your job easier.
Also, advertising on your website indicates that your site has a stable income model. Of course, exaggerating the advertisement business and posting excessive banners will cause you to lose this advantage.
More Visual Elements:Using lots of images and videos in your articles will help you explain yourself better. Video usage in particular increases both the average time users spend on your site and the interaction.
About Us and Contact Pages:In order for your organization to be more convincing, you should add pages about us and contact us on your website. You should show information such as phone number, e-mail address, publisher and author address on these screens.
Professional Interface:To make your website more readable, you should choose a professional design. One of the issues that Google News also cares about is the user interface. Regardless of the software you use, you should choose simple and comfortable structures on the design side.
