The last time my site was reviewed was last year. Yet, and I've reviewed my emails to make sure I'm correct on this, when I have signed up for reconsideration, someone there in your division claims that they will look at it after 60 days has passed by. This has not happened. There's no reason for this kind of discrimination against the content I produce; when I posted to SFGate.com, and it was content originally at Zennie62.com, there was no problem posting it to Google News.
This has been an ongoing problem, it seems. I approached Marissa Mayer about it at TechCrunch Disrupt 2010, and she told me it was the algorithm, but admitted that there should not be a problem. Then my content on my BLOGGER blog was included after that, and due to Hunter Walk's intervention. But on November 19th 2010, Google took down thousands of blogs from Google News in a preemptive effort as part of a legal battle. Now, I run a Wordpress site with the correct permalink and all guidelines are met that have been stated - Zennie62Blog.com is a breaking news and daily news blog that should be in Google News. There's no good reason why it should not be included, and it's a multi-author blog.
