Site dropped from listings? or Problem with site map? iradiophilly 6/13/12 9:36 AM
On Monday afternoon Google News stopped indexing our new stories on http://iradiophilly.com for some reason. When looking at webmaster tools there's an error reported for our News Sitemap:

Your Sitemap is on a site that is not in the Google News database. Google News can only accept Sitemaps from sites that we crawl. If your site is crawled by Google News, please check that the URL of your Sitemap agrees with the URLs of your articles as they appear on Google News, including any leading "www". If you would like to request inclusion of your site in Google News, please contactthe Google News support team.

Nothing has changed on our end, it's been set up the same way for well over a year. Not sure what to do next. Any help?

Hi Tom,

Hang in there a bit - the Google News team is aware there is a problem and is working on it -
