Missing or Delayed News Items InternetBroadcasting 6/12/12 2:55 PM
We're seeing instances where news articles are not showing up in Google News or are taking extra long to show up (over 4-12 hours, if ever). I've checked  Google WebMaster Tools and there are no errors specific as to why these stories would not have been accepted/indeed.  I've verified they are indeed in our newssitemap - which is updated in near realtime. We can resubmit the sitemap successfully, but the story is still not included. I've done general and news specific searches using site:www.clickondetroit.com and cannot locate the content. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi Ib, the Google News team are looking into the matter. It looks like it is a widespread issue, not just your website. Please have some patience as the team are ameliorating the issues at hand.

Hi Mjwalshe,

This is on its way to be resolved, according to Erik. You can follow along in this thread: http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/news/google-news-publishers/A1RiScGoLGY 

It may take a little while for everything to start working normally again though, but that thread will be updated as developments happen,
