Add Relevant News Articles to My Website

    I would like to add a few relevant news items to my website (not a hubpage) to help with SEO efforts. I have read numerous hubpage articles that recommend this strategy for helping with getting better page ranking. The problem is I can’t figure out how to add the required code to my page to get it to work.  I understand that using JavaScript won’t help because search engines only see a link not the relevant news items. I would also like to get news that relates to the particular page. I’m going on day 3 of trying to figure this out and getting very frustrated.

      What is your website built on?  If it's Wordpress or Blogger, there's a Google news plugin.

      Sorry, you'll have to wait till someone more knowledgeable comes along!  That's why I use Wordpress, you can create everything with ready-made plugins and widgets.

    Marisa actually does just what your asking - just via wp plugins

    Your easiest way will be to go to poogle news and pick out a relevant rss for yourself - then use an rss to html service

    at google news - just use the search field  then right click the rss icon you will then get something like this:

    http://news.google.com/news?pz=1&cf … output=rss

    then find  a rss to html service - just google it - heres one example

    http://www.rss-info.com/en_rssinclude-simple.html


    sometimes, the sites have issues with google news rss formats - either look for a more traditional rss feed from a new source or see if running it through feedburner or yahoo pipes makes it work

    there will be other ways to get this done (3rd party widgets/php scripts) - but rss to html is the most search engine friendly way I have discovered to date
