Starting News section on a blog?

Hi there,

I want to include my blog into Google News. As of now, my blog is having How to contents and evergreen articles only. I am about to start a news division and initially planning to post 5-10 articles per day. Can I get Google News approval? Many say that as mine is not a dedicated News portal, I won’t get the approval.

What do you guys think?

Non-dedicated news sites are also getting approval from Google news. I think Google considers high traffic blogs. Shoutmeloud is not a news site but it’s in Google news. Another example is howtogeek.

Yes, you can get if you post a lots of Newsworthy content. Before applying, fix your about page, contact page, team page, etc.

I’m also planning for the same, but postponed due to time and content writers.
