How to List Your Site in MySpace News

SMS Text

MySpace News has launched and they are looking for news sources to include in their index.

You can submit your site or blog to MySpace News via their Feed Submit form.

Using the form, publishers can submit their feed, URL and choose a related news category. We’ve submitted Search Engine Journal and will look for referrals from MySpace News.

MySpace News

Once stories are indexed by the MySpace News Meme-like news tracker, they can be voted upon. For example, this SEJ story on Click Fraud is indexed in MySpace News and has been voted upon 4 times.

Since it has been voted more times than other stories within the Search Technology area, the story is at the top.

MySpace News Ranked Story

Users have to be MySpace members to vote, but MySpace is also tracking votes by user IP or Cookie(my vote is still registered and personalized after logging out of MySpace), so don’t try spamming MySpace News via multiple MySpace accounts.

Given their Digg-like voting platform, I expect MySpace News to become part of many a social media marketing and news distribution mix, in the same fashion as Netscape, NewsVine and ShoutWire.

    Interesting enough I could vote unlogged in and logged in.

  • Loren Baker, Editor

    Funny Ken, according to the FAQ one has to be a MySpace user to vote. Guess they forgot to implement that for day one 🙂

  • Bill Hartzer

    Interesting find. I’m not sure if the myspace crowd will really be into reading news, so it will be interesting to see if this takes off.

  • Rhea Drysdale

    hmmm… possibilities….

    Thanks for the post!

  • Bigrayvin

    It will seem that Myspace it trying to make sure they have all bases covered in marketing to their crowds. It seems like a great service.

  • DR Massey

    Who can blame Myspace for covering or at least attempting to cover all the bases. Everyone wants a slice of this pie no matter how small.

    Check it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    finally a auction website that does not charge to list items for sale Check it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Ebay + criagslist = TGOSELL

    At criagslist its free to list items forsale but not many people sell there items because
    they are mostly listed at set price. Ebay has auctions and buy it now which help sell your
    items faster but you have to pay a listing fee about $3.75 per $100.00 sale and more. So
    this = TGOSELL.COM where we like craigslist have free listing on items for sale and like
    Ebay we have auctions and buyitnow with no auction listing fee. so you can now have the
    best of both websites Ebay + Craiglist = check it out.

    When logging into MS, where does one navigate to actually submit their URL? There is no set of definitive instructions?
