Why Google’s News Should Become Your #1 News Alternative!

By | August 18, 2014


Google news is an alternative to your daily metrowest newspaper. It is a highly useful tool as it accumulates all the latest trending news to date into one single dashboard. Google News does this by scanning through 5000 various news sources all around the world. Additionally, any and all Google News can be translated into just about any of the many major worldwide languages. 

an amazing source for effective research!

The amazing thing about Google News is having the ability to highly personalize the news your most interested in reading about. In addition you have the ability to prioritize Google News sections in terms of importance.

Hence, Google News is more powerful than shown at first sight.

Let me show you an example of how Google News can be effectively utilized by not only news readers, but by online marketers, social media experts, bloggers, professional writers, affiliate marketers, and so many more.

Effective Utilization of Google News:

#1) Setting up the Basics: (e.g. language and customizing our layout)
To make sure we have the right language we want in place, let’s head over to the upper left-hand tab, and utilizing the drop down menu, simply pick your desired native language:

Lets Now Customize Our Google News Dashboard: After selecting the language, simply choose anyone of the 4 options for your desired layout. Here are my 2 favorite Google News Templates! (Click To Zoom In!)

#2- effective utilization of google news + social media!

Top Google News Stories

Viewing Top Google News Stories






Now lets focus our eyes on the left hand column: “Top Stories“. These are our categorical items in place. For example, the first one here is “Police.” Hence, if I were to click on that category I would get the Top Most Police related topics from around the region.

If I were to click on San Francisco 49ers, I would then get the Top Stories dealing only with the 49ers, even if, there is nothing special or trending at that particular moment or time, it should give us the latest, and most popular trending news.

As we move on within this tutorial, you’ll be able to see how you can greatly customize Google News to the best of our liking! Ex: You can create your own news categories in terms of how broad or specific the category is.

When clicking on Police, this is what shows (e.g., Youtube Videos, U.S. News, Huffington):

Some more awesome features with this is the ability to view “Realtime Coverage,” as well as being able to tweet, share onto Google Plus, any news story that you’d like!

This must be one of the best ways to help grab attention, utilizing social media. The more engaging  these stories we share are, the more occurring shares should happen around the web!

A truly under-utilized tactic nonetheless.

Note: not everything you share has to be about YOUR website, or YOUR content. In essence, this is a

greatly underlooked way that can gradually help build up audience, followers, and attention as you are have multiple ways of now attaining their focus through this plethora of mediums in the News! 

As soon as you’re able to grab that attention, you’ve now already accomplished the very first step involved within the “consumer lifecycle process.”

The more you get into this habit the more you trust, and legitimacy you will gain, and not be shown as some type of scam artist. I must also say, people have every right in the world to be as skeptical as they like when researching either an opportunity, or a new product online. I therefore, believe by blogging about ideas, noteworthy, and trending new topics, as well as showing people how to tutorials, even when gaining nothing in return, is more essntial to success than simply placing links and banners right next to one another. Without a trustworthy business, you don’t have much of anything!

The more you engage and immerse yourself by utilizing such techniques, you will truly be on your way to becoming one hell of an affiliate marketer who people will come to trust and relate with and to on many, many levels. It’s also a great exercise and habitual technique that can create a lot of joy, happiness, and even fun, while working in this type of desirous manner.

#3- Customization of Our Personalized Google New’s Top Stories

This should be exciting, right?! Of course.

Let us now take a look at how we can effectively personalize our very own customizable Google News Tab! As you can see the categories on your left shows the main, most popular categories (World, U.S., Business, Technology, Entertainment, Sports, etc., etc.).

What we’ll want to do now is personalize it to have it better fit our need and the results we’d want to be on the lookout for. Hence, we wouldn’t want to miss out on a very important and worthy news topic we could either blog about, produce a video on, and just maybe have it spreading virally, thus allowing ourself to leverage and create an amazing noteworthy brand out!

Thanks to Google, as they do seem to simplify life by just about every possible measure.

What I really want to show you is to the right of the categories your ability to rank not so much in terms of merely importance, but moreso with the quantity of our News Reports that will have showing up on your Google News Dashboard in no time, after having specified the topics we want to know most about every morning we awake, saving 50 cents to $2.50 on our very own news!! Awesome, right? Maybe.. Ok.

Well for the record, I truly understand how many people prefer having the newspaper in front of their very own eyes every morning, while eating breakfast, maybe in the bathroom, or riding the subway to work… BUT, that doesn’t mean we should completely shut-out Google News from our daily routine…

As you can see here were the first 5 sources shown on my dashboard.. I know, some prefer one newsource over the other, which is why, Google also allows you to choose which news sources you’d like showing up in your news dashboard!

Google is immensely powerful, but even moreso proficient and effective when it comes to their readers and consumers. They love facilitating everything, which is why Google is essentially the third largest market valued company in the entire world, thus being valued at $382 Billion Dollars! 


Moreover, we have the ability to not only rank our categorically trending news by relevancy and importance, but also by quantifying number of news articles, for each single category.

  • Using Google’s simple drag to the right and left option:

-Drag the bar to the left and you will receive news on a “Rare” or “Occasional” basis.

      -Keep the bar in the middle and news will simply show up as: “Sometimes.”

-Now drag the bar to the right, and you will get: “Often” and “Always.”
