Google News Removes Websites.

Google News recently took the step of dropping websites that it says were not meeting the company’s quality guidelines.

The website has been facing criticism over the increased volume of low quality and “spammy” results and this move aims to remove these.

Google News is a service that displays news articles from sources around the world and allows users to search many difference sources at once.

Unlike Google’s standard search, inclusion to Google News requires sources to be first vetted by human editors.  However, after the vetting process, some publishers have changed their practices and consequently violated the Google News guidelines.

Google News has also confirmed they are reviewing their policies in order to provide a better service for Google News users.  Their aim is to include websites that conduct original, quality reporting.  It was eight years ago when Google News was first launched and it is now beginning to evolve to the changing web.

a testimonial or two…

Since working with Jason from Search and More we have built up an excellent relationship with both him and his company. We truly feel that they are interested and committed to improving our on-line presence. From creating our weekly blogs right through to totally re-designing our website to ensure that it is ‘mobile friendly’. I would say that Search and More have become an integral part of our business and I would recommend their services whole heartedly.
