I don't know how but my blog has been getting pageviews from news.google.com. How is it happening? Is it possible that my posts would show in Google News?

    I presume you mean you are receiving referral traffic from news.google.com? – zigojacko May 27 '13 at 11:06
  • Have you registered for Google Adsense? – Christopher May 28 '13 at 6:37

There have been instances where Google has detected a blog as a news feed and provides access to it through Google News. When this happens you will see referrer traffic showing up from news.google.com and when the actual indexing of your content happens you will see pageviews showing up as news.google.com as the news crawler indexes the news articles in your blog.
