My news sitemap shows 0 pages indexed - My web sitemap shows 15 - Which one is feeding Google News1 Recommended Answer
Finally got our first article to show up today on the news - however, I think we still have a problem.
When I checked my webmaster account - in the sitemap list - only one of my sitemaps showed any pages indexed.
My news sitemap is at http://www.kingofalltrades.com/google-news-sitemap.xml
My normal web sitemap is at http://www.kingofalltrades.com/sitemap.xml
Today our first article appeared on google. It was actually an older article - not our most recent. On top of that - the news sitemap not showing anything indexed makes me think it's pulling from our web sitemap not the automatically updated news sitemap I have installed in my wodpress blog. I am at wits end making sense of what's really going on. I need to find out how to get the news sitemap to feed / populate google news ie index right.
Any advice/help you could provide would be greatly appreciated!

We've recently noticed that all news sitemaps which were submitted since Friday were rejected in Webmaster Tools. Our engineers were able to fix this bug and we've just resumed crawling the news sitemaps again. We apologize for the inconvenience in resubmitting your news sitemaps and appreciate your support while we work to improve Google News.
Try removing the news sitemap from the console and submit it again making sure you select "Google news sitemap" when prompted to select the type.
Maybe it just needs you to be a bit pushy :)
Report back please
Sitemap has been reloaded and shows up with the green check mark - still no pages on it indexed though. Thinking I need to use more profanity :-)
No idea why the news sitemap is showing no posts - but somehow we ended up with an article posted to google. I'm happy with that one showing up - but more concerned about the newer articles that aren't. I'll keep trying to work the issue - it has actually shown zero pages indexed on the news sitemap for about a week and a half now.
But I can access your WordPress only with huge delays for some reason, tried from the United States, Japan and my own location. The connection is very slow and it's not just me.
So, let's wait a few minutes and see if when the site recovers fully what happens.
The server is sitting in Orgegon.
Not sure how i could have three sitemaps. That's extremely weird. I'll have to figure out how the heck that's showing up - I only know of the two.
Site was slow a little bit ago - but seems to be ok now - i just cleared the site cache.
