Google News isn't indexing our News anymore and I don't know why 0 Recommended Answers 17 Replies 0 Upvotes

Hey there,

on July 16th Google News Bot stopped indexing our articles. So far I checked everything:

- News-Sitemap in Search Console doesn't show errors. However, last index is the 16th.
- Structured Data Testing Tool is fine. (https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool?hl=de#url=https%3A%2F%2Fmixed.de%2Fracketnx-oculus-quest-test-cyber-sport-perfektioniert%2F)
- URL Inspection Tool doesn't show any errors.
- Google News Source is active.
- Google Producer indexing is working.

Maybe you can help with that? It's hard for us to maintain our ad revenue without the news traffic.

Thank you!

Any ideas? We are losing users and money every day as long as this issue exists. :(

I have exactly the same problems here. No indexing since the 16th of July but still approved in the publisher center.

Hi Stephan,

did you write to the google team yet? They told me they are "looking into it", but no details provided. 

My news sitemap wasn't crawled since July the 17th according to Webmaster Tools.

It's a blow, since, without News, we are basically loosing 50 percent of our audience.

Greetings

Yes, i wrote them - now waiting for feedback. Google stopped crawling all of my Sitemaps on July 16th... 

Strange: from that day on all my articels in the search console changed status from "crawled" to "crawled / no Sitemap" even though the Sitemap exists and is accesable...

Mine says: "Indexed, not submitted in sitemap
Status: Valid"

There is also two different Sitemap Types now: Sitemap and Sitemap index. It's really weird.

It's now ten days without news traffic and we lost a few thousand readers in this time. No feedback from Google so far. Why is this happening?

I checked again the status of our articles, Stephan, it says:

"Indexed, not submitted in sitemap"

Although the sitemap is there and fine.

Well, they broke something and it seems like they don't are in a rush to fix it. After all, it's not their business at stake here. German G News guy is on holiday as well, as far as I know. All in all, it's a pretty horrible experience and, as you stated it, it shows how bad it is when one player is dominating the entire german news business. Not good.

Thanks for posting! I'm not directly on the Google News team, but based on your feedback here we've been able to spot & resolve a sitemaps-related issue related to this. To help speed up reprocessing, please resubmit your sitemap file in Search Console.

Hi Brian, Gil, 
 
Google News is making changes and previously 'included' sites will no longer necessarily have their articles automatically included in Google News. 
 
The algo now pulls news content from of the web in general. 
 
You can use the new Publisher Center as a way to offer your articles to Google News and have your publication listed in Newsstand and be followable in Google News, plus take advantage of branding and a number of other options. When you visit the new Publisher Center, you might see your sites already listed. If not, you can add them in.
