The Google News Effect

I submitted one of my sites last week to Google News, and it was approved for inclusion. It was indexed this week. The site is a news sites that was initially geared towards local Cleveland, Ohio people, but also included national and international interest articles. It was averaging about 25 to 50 uniques for the past couple months per day with no promotion, links or anything. That's pretty low traffic. It's only about 3 or 4 months old. Since being included in Google News, the traffic is rising considerably. Check out the stats (last column is unique visits):

10 Oct 2006 27
11 Oct 2006 25
12 Oct 2006 19
13 Oct 2006 16
14 Oct 2006 21
15 Oct 2006 17
16 Oct 2006 24
17 Oct 2006 135
18 Oct 2006 525
19 Oct 2006 591
20 Oct 2006 878

Oct. 17th was when it was added to Google News, late in the day. Pretty neat. I always wondered how much of an impact it would make to be included in Google News. I'm curious to see if it keeps rising... So far, entertainment and sports stories are the biggest draw....

Also, interestingly, the Google News traffic seems to produce a higher click through rate on AdSense ads on the site. I don't get that kind of click through on any of my sites with similiar traffic levels. I will also be watching this to see if that remains steady. I wonder if people who use Google News are more likely to click the ads.

It wasn't any one particular news article. I have lots of articles posted daily, each one getting hits from Google News. But the most popular seem to be entertainment and sports related ones.

The turn around time from it being published on my site and being included in Google News seems to be about 5 minutes.

I think Google News only publishes the best one isn't it.

You need to submit your site to be included, meet their guidelines, and be approved.

Very nice information. Thanks for sharing. I submitted a site to Google News close to a year ago and got rejected. Not entirely sure why, but it is something I had been planning on revisting in the future. It is nice to see you get a decent flow of traffic from it.

Can I submit my RSS feed to be included in Google News?

At this time, we don't accept RSS or Atom feeds for inclusion in Google News. Google News currently finds articles by crawling online news sites.

If your news content appears on a website, please let us know and we’ll review it.

Google News does not accept all sites that are submitted. I think the v7 blogs were even submitted and got denied.

As a follow up to the stats above....

Oct. 21 I got about 680 UVs
Oct. 22 I got 7000 UVs (due to someone finding my story on Google News and putting it up on Digg).
