According to an announcement on December 10, Google has finally launched the Publisher Center, which is an interface that lets publishers to submit, manage and monetize their content in Google News and other Google properties. The Publisher Center is the merging of two other existing tools, Google News Publisher Center and Google News Producer.
With this new interface, the user experience and functionality has been improved upon, decreasing the friction involved with managing your publication’s branding, content, ads and more on Google News.
If your company has different publications, the new interface also makes it easier to organize and switch between them. Improved permission settings should make collaboration more fluid.
Publishers can now use their site sections’ URLs instead of RSS to configure sections in Google News.
If you had a source in the old Google News Publisher Center or an edition in the former Google News Producer tool, your organization and publication(s) should appear in the new Publisher Center.
Publisher Center is currently available in the following languages: English, Spanish, French and German, with more languages planned for the future.
