    Exclamation Very High ranking on Google News but not google.com


    Hello!

    Google news seems to love our news articles! It's ranking them in top positions when searching for the keywords we are targeting.

    On the other hand..

    Our web site is not doing as well and is trailing on the 3rd or 4th page when searching those same keywords on google.com.

    Now with content being so very important to google, wouldn't we be ranked higher because our news is doing so well?

    Our homepage only has a small RSS feed of our news headlines linking to our articles(which are being posted using movable-type). Would making the site more centered around that news bring up our ranking? Example: Listing daily news right down the middle of our site like bb.co.uk

    In the end, I'm wondering how I can use the power of these news articles to pull our page up in google.com.

    EDIT: we do 6 news updates daily!

    Thanks for the help!

    In stands to reason that you trail in search - search has 20+ billion pages and news has 10 less + fresh news is important less included "NOW" gets top spot... [look for that page a year from now though].

    You do press release?

    Does your news garner a link to the main website?

    If so... it will work itself out in time... course being far more conscious of what links, link anchor text, resident on related pages/website will make this occur 'faster'.

    We do daily press releases and news items and our news articles do have a spot linking to our main page.

    Would focusing on this news on the main page make much of a difference?

    (thanks for the response!)
