Philipp, you might like to visit our site,

Since the beginning of 2004 we have been rating news sites based on their appearances at Google News.
We monitor Google News regularly and in depth. Since the beginning of 2004 we have monitored 1336 major news items there, recording not just appearances on the Google News home page but down to 10 pages deep of listings for individual news items. We have details of around quarter of a million individual site listings so far.
We believe that our ratings reflect Google's intent fairly well because we rate based on quantity and quality; that is we note the "relevance order" in which Google News lists the sites for each news item.
You can see an example of our statistics at ...

On that page we compare the performance of BBC News and Guardian Unlimited at Google News, and discuss their relevance to US news fans and what they might do to improve their position.

Feel free to contact me for further info.
