Our site in not in Google news anymore? Has been for years, but now not indexing ... jbanks 6/14/12 8:44 AM
Our site, myMotherLode.com, is not getting its stories indexed in Google news since last Friday.  We haven't gotten any notification, but we are getting a message that our site map is for a site not in Google News. About 200 older articles are still in Google news, but no new ones.  I understand others have had a similar problem.  Any updates?

Thanks

No updates have been posted yet... but perhaps when the regular GN team gets in this morning (G's on Pacific Time) we will hear something...

the problem is not fixed for many people even though we have all been told otherwise


this is extremely disappointing and a huge hole in the incomes of several news writers.

Chelsea,

Can you provide examples?   You mentioned gather.com in another thread, I just checked and there are recent articles from the last few hours, Or perhaps it has been fixed since you posted the above note -

Gather isn't spam. It's no different from Huffington Post or other news sites that offer commentary on current events as well as original reporting. I've personally broke stories there that garnered an impressive amount of recognition. Of course, I can only speak for myself. I don't spam and I've written there for over a year. Again, it's not *my* site so I can't speak for everyone, but I owe almost all of my success to Gather News. I wouldn't be who I am today without them and I wouldn't be moving forward in my career with as much ease without them. I've worked with National Geographic regarding their latest "Drugs" documentary thanks to my work with Gather, and I've gotten attention from Dateline NBC because of them -- I now blog for Huffington Post on the side thanks to them.

So, I don't think they're "spam." 

It's actually an excellent site with stringent requirements to write there and a pretty decent amount of credibility that I think ranks it up there with some of the mainstream sources in the GN index. That's just my opinion.
