Your site is automatically considered for Google News and news surfaces in Search — no application required. Once our systems identify content that is eligible to appear, its ranking is determined automatically
by a variety of factors, including relevance of content, prominence, authoritativeness, freshness, location, and language.You can use the Publisher Center
to define certain details about your site — RSS feeds, website URLs, videos and more — that can help manage your brand and make it easier for Google to index your site. The Publisher Center can also be used to create a "News source" page for publications, if you don't already have one. This page allows Google News users – if they choose – to follow
the publication and see its latest content.While the Publisher Center can help you manage content that's deemed eligible, eligibility itself is determined through the automated process. Given this, being approved
to use the Publisher Center, submitting content through it or having a News source page does not mean content will appear in:Search results at Google NewsGoogle News features like "For you" or HeadlinesNews surfaces in Search such as Top stories or the News tabIf you don't want your content to appear in Google News, you can block access
to it without affecting your continued indexing and ranking in Google Search.
