These errors you’re noticing are News-specific crawl errors. Our crawler uses many signals to determine what content on your page in an article and should be included in Google News. Generally you should make sure that the body of your article is relatively clean without too many links or non-text elements breaking up the text of an article. Using proper HTML code and placing all text in <p> tags without too many <br> tags can also help. You should also review our full list of News-specific to see steps on how to resolve these errors yourself (Reference 1).
If none of the suggestions listed in the article below help you resolve a crawl error, please contact our team directly. Some issues you’ll have to fix on your end, but we may be able to do some additional troubleshooting.
