If there is one thing that most webmasters or bloggers work hard to increase everyday besides their websites income, it has to be traffic. They are many different methods that one can use to drive traffic, some are easier to implement than others and some will get you more traffic than others.
One way to get more traffic for your blog is to get it approved for the Google news service. What this service does is search the database of news sources and tries to bring you the most relevant news stories based on your search.
When it comes to choosing news sources the Google service is quite picky as to who it includes in its database capsdoc.com. I do know of an example of one blog that was allowed in and then after a few weeks was removed when they decided that the blog did not meet their requirements.
If the quality of your blog is high and if it has a proven record, there is a very high possibility of your blog being included into Google news and stay there. Your website has to be something that is relevant to the main subject areas of the service. If you go to their main page and look on the left hand menu you will see these categories like Top Stories, World, Sports, Health and Most Popular.
In order to submit your blog go to the main page and scroll down to the bottom. There is a link that reads ‘About Google News’. When you click on that link on the next page you will get a page with a link to ‘Help For Publishers’. Under the ‘Getting Started’ section, select ‘Submitting Your Content’ then click on ‘Google News’ and simply follow the instructions.
Today you see the beginning of a new era: the era of the news blogger. In the beginning, blogging was all about chronicling your life and your opinion. People would read your blog to see into your personal life. It was like reading someone’s personal diary. Today, blogging has evolved into a news business for many.
People can make money from running a blog. So it is only natural that people extend blogging into reporting and breaking news from their perspective. Bloggers have started doing this to drive more people to their blog. With more people reading a blog, the higher the advertising revenue.
Bloggers do not generally go through the usual fact-checking process that traditional news outlets do. Some bloggers listen to and rewrite the rumor mill just to generate new content. It is those bloggers who produce stories rather than reports that often gain the most readers. They claim to report something when in reality is often nothing more than well-written speculation.
One advantage that bloggers have over news sites is that they do not have to abide by an organization’s standards and political views. The can have full poetic license with the words they write. As a journalist you aspire to bringing the nation to their knees for a big promotion with. For a blogger, the returns are more direct. Many bloggers benefit directly from increased traffic in the form of advertising revenue. “Exposing the ugly truth” often becomes the motive for many bloggers without regard to the long-term consequences.
