    Owned one at least a decade ago and wouldn't touch another one today. Back then AdSense CPM's/Ad's in general were paying a lot more. Google has cracked down on "fake news" sites, plus censors content they don't like. Plus the content isn't evergreen, which means you have to constantly pump out fresh content daily.

    Best thing about it, there was no need for SEO and all the traffic it received.

    Google cracking down on acceptance of google news inclusion is actually a great thing, means there's less contributors.

    These are the reasons I don't like them:
    1. Monetizing is difficult. Celeb News or General News, is too generic for high paying Ad's. You'll make pennies-on-the-dollar. If I was to do it again, I'd target the Financial News as that niche pays well.
    2. Google doesn't like excessive advertising/affiliate ads on a GN site.
    3. I'd rather target a better paying niche and write evergreen content that is still relevant years down the road. That continues to make revenue as well, long after it's written/published.

    If you craft great headlines/titles for your content, you will receive lots of traffic though.
    Problem is people searching for "Celeb News" are not in the "buying stage", they're just looking for info/gossip or killing time.
