Google has just launched a new webmaster’s tool like console for Google News publishers called the Google News Publisher Center. It should help all those who’re already on the Google News network to update how your website shows up in Google News.
- Update your news site details, including changing your site name and labeling your publication with any relevant source labels (e.g., “Blog”, “Satire” or “Opinion”)
- Update your section URLs when you change your site structure (e.g., when you add a new section such as http://example.com/2014commonwealthgames or http://example.com/elections2014)
- Label your sections with a specific topic (e.g., “Technology” or “Politics”)
Apart from this, if you have a website that has content ready to go to Google News (abiding by their guidelines obviously), you can submit an application via the Google News Publishing Center.
You got to make sure that the quality guidelines are met and you have all the basic things like a contact page with the physical address, authors list etc covered.
You can find all the general technical guidelines for Google News here and here.
