Submitted multiple sitemaps for blogs. Do you know why we are no longer indexed in news? ChaddyP 8/9/12 6:15 PM
We run a political news website: http://ivn.us. Site has been indexed by Google news for a long time. Recently launched blogs (about 12 of them), and everything was working great. Blogs and homepage articles showed up in news results (with proper notation - IE: (blog)). 

Last night, we submitted individual site-maps for the blogs, thinking it would be easier for Google to search them all.  Now nothing showing up in Google news except one blog http://ivn.us/social-ballot.  I presume we missed this sitemap when adding all the others?

Only the main site (not the blogs) are showing up in regular search results.

In panic, we removed all the individual blog site-maps and resubmitted the main sitemap as well as the main news sitemap.  Says they are successfully submitted, but still not working.

Any suggestions?

Hi ChaddyP,

Using the site search parameter, site:ivn.us  in the search box, it looks like it's now picking them up.

Is that correct?
