There is a news website / blog - I'll call it the Site from now on. The site mention a keyword in one of its articles.

I add a Google Alerts for the keyword, but I do not get any alert for the word from The Site. Furthermore, searching the keyword in the news section don't getting any results from The Site.

The Site has a sitemap, that indexed by Google every x minutes. And in the main search, searching for a news title bring the item on the top.

What are the best ways to get included in Google Alerts mails?

Google Alerts typically only show the newest posts/pages that the crawler finds. If your pages are old, they won't show up.

  • I'm talking about the new pages.
