  • Hay Phil....

    I figured out how to include post into Google News without a Google News Sitemap...

    After you add your RSS feed to Google Webmaster, All you have to do is add a 3 digit to your title and your post will be in Google News within Minutes.


    News 001: Man kill himself after divorce

    You can be creative to included a 3 digit within your post, do you have anything to share or tips on improving network.... I'm always looking for new ideas.
  • We trying to get help for this but no help yet, we open a ticket with Ning and we are waiting on a reply.

    When we went to verify that our site accepted into Google News, we notice that one article was already included, this article also shows up on the front page of Google search as a Google news content.

    We did already from day one plugged in RSS of each section of our site into Google Webmaster...

    We still trying to find out the correct way to get this done..
