In the last several posts I’ve covered the basic Google Sitemaps, but there are additional types of Sitemaps to consider using based on the type of content you produce. But one of the most commonly used specialized Sitemaps is a Google News Sitemap.
News Sitemaps allow you to control what type of information you submit to Google News. However, Google News doesn’t necessarily favor your web pages for inclusion in Google News just because you have a Google News Sitemap.
Before You Get Started
Before you create a Google News Sitemap, you should make sure that your site is registered with Google as a news website. You can request that Google include your site in Google News by clicking here.
