    Google's new Useragent for News

    Hope it's the right section to post this...

    New User Agent for News

    Today we are announcing a new user agent for robots.txt called Googlebot-News that gives publishers even more control over their content.
    Site owners can just add Googlebot-News specific directives to their robots.txt file. Similar to the Googlebot and Googlebot-Image user agents, the new Googlebot-News user agent can be used to specify which pages of a website should be crawled and ultimately appear in Google News.
    Include pages in Google web search, but not in News:
    User-agent: Googlebot
    Disallow:

    User-agent: Googlebot-News
    Disallow: /
