Google News Older Than 30 Days? Look at Google News Archives

Jul 29, 2008 • 9:21 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under Other Google Topics

Numerous webmasters are learning that Google News considers freshness of stories first and foremost. Google News only shows 30 days of news, and once that 30-day window has passed, your news gets dropped into the archives.

But not always.

According to the folks at Google, if your news stories are older than 30 days, they don't automatically get archived. In fact, you need to request that Google archive the stories for you. Should you want to be included in the archive search, you need to follow the instructions on this form and submit the proper material to Google for consideration.

Google News Archive Search launched on September 6, 2006.

Forum discussion continues at Google Groups (#1) and Google Groups (#2).
