    Niche news alerts in web page?

    Hello, I am making a website for an attorney who provides foreclosure relief to homeowners.

    We would like to have appear on the landing page good news articles from multiple news sources that are related to home foreclosures.

    I am thinking that the best way to do this is by ADDING GOOGLE NEWS TO YOUR WEBSITE.

    http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/...r-website.html

    I have no experience with RSS or not even sure what it is, but I have had no problems teaching myself new things so far so if anyone has any suggestions on how to go about doing this that would be great.

    I develop websites from scratch and do not use things like Drupal or Wordpress.

    What would be the best way to go about adding targeted news articles from solid news sources to my landing page?

    Haven't you answered your own question? Have you tried the Google News option? You can customize it here:

    http://www.google.com/webelements/#!/news

    and it gives you code to paste onto your site.

    This certainly seems like the easiest option.

    I figured since there are so many ways out there to do things maybe there was a better place that got more or better news articles form more/better sources. Yeah, I figured since Google is the monster that it would probably be the best route.

    Thanks for the confirmation!
