Google announced that it's giving publishers in Google News a newsletter to keep them up to date on things they need to to know.

To get it, you'll need to make sure your site is in Google News, log into the Publisher Center to check the status of its inclusion, and prove ownership of your site through Webmaster Tools.

"Often times there are important announcements and product features we'd like to tell you about," says Google's Stacie C in a forum thread (via Search Engine Roundtable). "To help Google News publishers stay up-to-date, many publishers will see our first quarterly newsletter in their inbox shortly!"

Stacie adds, "This first newsletter will showcase: the Google News Publisher Center, adding your Editors' Picks feed, how to troubleshoot article crawl errors, and an update on image crawl. For Issue #2, we'd love to hear what *you*, the publishers, want to know more about."

You can opt out of the newsletter by hitting the unsubscribe link in the footer of the email.

For now, the newsletter is English-only, but it will be expanded into additional languages in the future. It's unclear if publishers in Spain will be getting it.
