Have a look at these eight tips that Google News is offering to help all the online news publishers better index their websites. Here they are:

  1. Keep the article body clean – “If your article body is broken up by
    tags, ads, sidebars or other non-article content, we may not be able to detect the actual article body, and reject your article as a result.”
  2. Make sure article URLs are permanent and unique
  3. Take advantage of stock tickers in Sitemaps – More on this @
  4. Check your encoding – make sure it's consistent and uniform
  5. Make your article publication dates explicit
  6. Keep original content separate from press releases
  7. Format your images properly – “Images in the JPEG format are more likely to be crawled correctly.”
  8. Article Titles in Google News – “Make sure the title you want appears in both the title tag and as the headline on the article page.”
