What is Google News?
Google News is a computer-generated news site that aggregates headlines from news sources worldwide, groups similar stories together and displays them according to each reader's personalized interests. Traditionally, news readers first pick a publication and then look for headlines that interest them.
It's hard to become a Google News Approved publisher, but once you're in, you can generate a lot of traffic.
How does this website generates revenue?
The revenue is twofold, Google Adsense and guest blogging. The principle is simple, every news article you post gets published on Google News.
Besides that, the news articles rank in total for more than 9300 keywords in Google Organic Search, with more than 80 of them on Google page #1
How do you get so many articles?
You hire writers for you with a cheap business model. Usually freelancer writers ask 4-5$ for a news article of 500 words. We got freelancers writing for us 15 articles for only 5$ per week.
How? You hire them on Upwork or Freelancer or any other online platform and you guarantee them 5* feedback if they decide to write for you for 3 months, delivering every week up to 15 unique quality articles.
The 5* feedback is more valuable to them as they need to build there online reputation on those platforms ( especially new writers). In this way, you only pay 0.33$/ article, you get good articles and they get good feedback.
This is a profitable business model as you make sure that the content is unique ( Copyscape test) , at least 400 words long and SEO optimized.
Our plan was to hire 20 freelancers writing up to 300 articles /week for 100$ but we don't just have time to manage it.
How does Google News rank your articles?
Google News is a automated algorithm which scans your articles and then decides if they are very good, or very bad. Several criteria are used such as , recent news, unique content, length of the article, etc...
Articles that go viral. How?
Attached you can find an screenshot of an article posted by one of my writers about 'Real Power Batteries'. This article went viral and was read more than 1300 times in a single day. You can see the Google Analytics screenshot on how many people where reading it at the same time. We had several articles going viral.
We use a plugin called 'SNAP', social network automated posting'. This plugin posts every new article automatically to our social media channels such as Google+, Pinterest, Flipboard, Stumbleupon, Medium, etc...
This geneates more traffic.
Other Ad networks ( Adlinks, content media, Taboola). Didn't try them before but you can add them together with Google Adsense.
Currently, the website already ranks for a lot of keywords in Google, ranging from Expendables 4 ( Google page 1) to Portal 3, Half-life, Brynn Rumfallo, etc...
Writing more content about these keywords will increase organic search.Besides that, the more articles you write, the more visitors you will get from Google News.
We have frequent request for Guest Blogging too, they pay us 20$ for every articles, where they can use backlinks.
Currently, the website is in 100% passive mode, only generating revenue from organic search as we stopped all contracts with our writers, as we don't have time to manage it.
I've put the reserve low at 1500$.
Everything on Godaddy, paying around 8$ shared hosting package
The screenshots show you the SEMrush Keywords ranking, articles that go viral and people asking for guest blogging.
