Default Tips For Getting Listed On Google News?

Interested in some advice and tips from anyone that has a website listed on Google News.

I have a new site that I am working on that will be a multi author site and I would like to try to get it listed with Google News for any news related articles (in addition to other strategy and idea articles). Trying to put structure in place so that when ready I will be apply to apply for Google News.

(For those that do not know, you can get your news related articles indexed in Google News and benefit from increased traffic, if approved)

Top tips I have read in various blog posts are:
- Use a Google News Sitemap plugin
- Use a 3 digit numeric structure in article URLs
- Have a multi author site & establish authorship
- Have a contact page with email, physical address or phone
- Blog daily and post newsworthy content with original editorial/analysis

Any other advice/tips on getting listed? Or feedback from getting denied? Also, out of curiousity, although I expect traffic and revenue to be higher when listed did you experience a noticeable spike?

thanks!

Great tips Diane.Here are some others too:
1.Submit your site directly to them-based on what has been mentioned here regarding multiple authors,this one is a must.And same case with personal contact information.The folks at Google will either approve or reject your submission but you'll be given the reasons as to why you didn't make it.If you don't at the first attempt,don't despair.Look to correct the areas that prompted the rejection and submit afresh after a few months.You could get lucky.
2.A Google news sitemap is a must-if on wordpress you can find a plugin that will install it for you.
3.Fine-tune it all for Google News.You can do this by having accurate titles and keywords and another trick is to use the SEO All-in-one-pack.This not only benefits you when it comes to Google News mentions but other Google searches too.

Thanks - yes, I did hear that the SEO All in One plugin was good for Google News... their is also a "Google News Sitemap" plugin that comes recommended from several sources, so I'll give both a try.

I know I can reapply, but really hoping to get squared away as much as possible before applying.

Anyone have feedback on how long a site should be running & publishing news type articles before applying?
