Google announced the launch of new Google News Publisher Center, with this you can inform your potential readers about the articles they are clicking on and you can benefit better discovery and classification of your news content.
According to a blog post by Google software Engineer Eric Weigle, “In the past, when you made changes to the structure of your site, we might not have discovered your new content. That meant a lost opportunity for your readers, and for you. Unless you regularly checked Webmaster Tools, you might not even have realized that your new content wasn’t showing up in Google News. To prevent this from happening, we are letting you make changes to our record of your news site using the just launched Google News Publisher Center”.
The publisher center enables you to:
- Update your news site details, including changing your site name and labeling your publication with any relevant source labels (e.g., “Blog”, “Satire” or “Opinion”)
- Update your section URLs when you change your site structure (e.g., when you add a new section such as https://example.com/2014commonwealthgames or https://example.com/elections2014)
- Label your sections with a specific topic (e.g., “Technology” or “Politics”)
Google has also released a help section on the Google News Publisher Center over here.
