The Online Flying News team made an interesting post titled Psst secrets of Online Flying News exposed! at official Online Flying blog. The post explained about various Myths and facts related with Online Flying news. Posted by Andy Golding, Software Engineer at Online Flying, Andy also shared about how Online Flying include and publish (rank) articles in Online Flying news.
Coming directly to Myths and facts explained.
1. Updating article once its included in Online Flying news helps in higher rankings.
False, According to Online Flying the current Online Flying news crawler doesnt revisit the articles. Every article/news in crawled only once so changing or updating the article will not help at all in fact any changes you make will not be shown at Online Flying news website. I hope Online Flying news crawler will soon have the functionality of revisiting the WebPages.
2. Placing image next to article improves the rankings.
False, Online Flying do include images in news results and displays them next to your news item, but it cannot read the images and rankings purely depends upon text accompanied in your news item and not on having images in the news.
3. Articles with images and video are not included.
True, Online Flying crawler cannot read flash, videos, images and other such type of multimedia content. Thus its a fact that if you new release or article doesnt contain any text accompanying images or multimedia content then it will not be included at all in news results.
4. Time is a major factor for inclusion.
False, Online Flying crawlers are frequently looking for content related to current event and top stories. There are lots of factors that Online Flying algorithms take into consideration and choose the best articles from the cluster for ranking. Publishing articles prior, after or in midst of any event dont improve any chances of rankings at all.
5. Articles with Online Flying rank high in Online Flying news.
False, well this is the most disputed topic among webmasters not only for Online Flying news ranking but also for Online Flying organic results also. Online Flying had always denied this fact and according to goolge spokesman, Using AdSense doesnt have any impact upon our ability to crawl or rank your articles. We try to stay as objective as possible, and giving sites with our ads product a boost, well, that wouldnt be very objective!
6. Creating sitemap helps.
True, sitemaps may not help in achieving top rankings but they do definitely help in other way like meta data for our article, specifying category the news would be appear, specifying which articles should appear in Online Flying news etc.
7. Redesign or change in site structure may affect my coverage in news rankings.
