Make It Easier To Submit Website For Bing News Inclusion

I was actually invited by Bing to submit my news site to be indexed in their News section. After sending over the information, I was told to e-mail if I hadn't heard anything in 30 days. It's been 3 months now, and I'm very confused as to this process.

With Google News, it's pretty simple and explanatory, but with Bing News, it's nearly impossible to find out how you would submit and what the requirement are. If it hadn't been for a Bing News person to e-mail me about being included, I wouldn't have known that they even did that.

To get more quality news sites indexed, it seems that showing how to submit your site and having people actually respond would give you more diversity with news coverage which most people want.

    Thanks for the news site suggestion. We’ve launched Bing News PubHub (https://pubhub.bing.com/), a portal that enables more publishers to submit their news websites and expand their reach to millions of users through desktop, Cortana, Outlook, and the Bing Search app. Publishers must follow the Bing Webmaster Guidelines (https://www.bing.com/webmaster/help/webmaster-guidelines-30fba23a) and verify ownership through Bing Webmaster Tools (http://www.bing.com/toolbox/webmaster/). We’d love to hear your feedback as we keep improving. Thanks!
