Support » Plugin: GN Publisher: Google News Compatible RSS Feeds » Articles Not Showing In GN Feed

  • I have followed the YT video to successfully install GN Publisher to my site, and now have my site LIVE on Google News but no articles show. I have tried several variations of the links provided and neither /feed/gn or /feed/ works. The google news feed still shows a message “no articles to show”…. before my publication was approved, all articles were showing in the review and publish section but looks like GN isn’t fetching the actual articles to publish….

    Any help?

    Hi Mykelbdavis,

    Is it okay with you if I post some of the feed urls here publically, or would you prefer to drop me an email at chris@andrews.com for me to send them to?

    Okay 🙂

    I’m not sure, but it looks like you have your categories set up in a way that’s not quite standard, but I’ve been experimenting and these look correct:

    https://news.muscleupmommy.com/category/news/latest-news/feed/gn/

    https://news.muscleupmommy.com/category/motherhood/parenting/feed/

    https://news.muscleupmommy.com/category/featured/feed/gn/

    The life & style section… according to the source code on that section, it’s the same as the articles you have listed on the news.muscleupmommy.com home page. If that’s correct, it would be:

    https://news.muscleupmommy.com/feed/gn/

    Now…. a complicating factor… there is an issue on Google’s end right now that causes that ‘no items to show’ error even though the feeds are working correctly. This has affected feeds from a variety of publishers, some using GN Publisher, others not.

    This issue has gone on for a couple of months now with no resolution. I’ll be meeting with some of the Google News staff and discussing this with them next week.

    All that to say, if you are using the urls above and things aren’t working, you are probably being affected by whatever this issue is,

    Yes, I’m using those URLs from above and they are listed on google news correctly.

    I must be getting the tail end of the issue that’s happening with google. Please keep us updated as I’d liked to get this fixed as soon as possible.

    Thanks for your prompt response.

    Oh, quick question – if you go to your Publisher Center, in the preview pane, are your articles posted there?

    If they are, that’s a sure sign this is on Google’s end. As that indicates Google is able to crawl them correctly and has them,

    Yes, the articles show in the preview pane and listed from the feed URL. They just aren’t showing in google. Otherwise, I can see them previewed and listed, just not published though the site is showing Live.

    The message I see when ‘testing’ the publication is “no items to show.”

    If you wouldn’t mind me using your Publication as a good example of the problem in my meeting next week, would you mind sending me an email so we can coordinate that a bit?
