  • Hello team, how are you? I hope thats all going well!

    A few months ago i started to try to index my website in the Google News, but something its going wrong, and its abou to 6 months that i have no results.

    I’ve created: Publisher Center (within 43 followers now), the sitemap using this very good plugin, we publish about 4~6 news or posts everyday, i’ve tryied to include all of my editorials, and optmized the posts with various seo tecnics.

    But something are blocking us to entering the Google NEws and i dont know what.

    Someome can help me? Maybe its just a detail that i am forget.

    Thank you very much and your help will be very welcome

  • Hi, it might be that this is happening because you seem to have changed your site name from “Meta Galáxia” to “Meta Galáxia: Reviews e notícias sobre Cultura Pop!”. The original is here https://news.google.com/publications/CAAqBwgKMMmNqQswu5jBAw?hl=pt-BR&gl=BR&ceid=BR%3Apt-419 but if I check https://www.google.com/search?q=site:metagalaxia.com.br&tbm=nws I see other Publisher names too.

    Go to Settings > Google News and enter “Meta Galáxia” in the Publisher name field. Then also make sure in Publisher Center you use the same publisher name.

    Also go to your Google Search Console account and add the news sitemap there. It will warn you when something is wrong.

    Hello @ravanh how are?
    Thank you very much for the directional!

    I applied this new configuration, and gonna wait to see if the results come!

    There is can be, by any chance, another issue that you might see?

    Thank you again, and i will let you know the result!

    I’ve not noticed any other obvious problems. Let me know and good luck with the site 🙂

    @mathclash What is the result? I don’t understand how the Publisher name can affect indexing.

    @mathclash looking at https://news.google.com/publications/CAAqBwgKMMmNqQswu5jBAw?hl=pt-BR&gl=BR&ceid=BR%3Apt-419 I do see the titles from your news sitemap are there in the different sections, except the “web stories”. Is that a post type? Have you included the web stories in the sitemap?

    Hello @ravanh

    Thank you very much for your attention, and expend your time trying to help me.

    You mean the sections/categories of the site? Yes, we have some sections/categories, and we included they in the ‘news sitemap’, as also we included they in the ‘main sitemap’.

    About the ‘Web Story’, they are included only in the ‘Publish Center’, because the option to include ‘Story” in the plugin are not allowed, as you can see in this pic.

    I’m doing something wrong?

    @ravanh iunderstand that the “category” of Web Story are not using the post category taxonomy.

    What do you recommend: remove the Web Stories from the Publisher Center?

    This detail can be the cause to not index in the GN?

    Multiple post types is only possible in the advanced version…

    This detail can be the cause to not index in the GN?

    But your site is indexed in GN. Both regular posts (as present in your news sitemap) as the web stories seem to be getting into Google News just fine. Maybe not instantly, but still within a few hours… It’s up to Google News to decide how fast and how often it will come to index new posts.

    Understood about the advanced version! We are considering it.

    About the GN indexing, how can you see it? Because, when i search in the tab “News” of Google, we are not there, as you can see in this pic.

    You can search for “site:metagalaxia.com.br” there. But the posts under the News tab are different from when you do a search for “site:metagalaxia.com.br” on news.google.com and indeed not the most recent ones as you can find on your dedicated news page https://news.google.com/publications/CAAqBwgKMMmNqQswu5jBAw?hl=pt-BR&gl=BR&ceid=BR:pt-419

    I would guess it’s ultimately up to Google News what to show where but maybe someone on the Publisher Center help forum https://support.google.com/news/publisher-center/threads can give you a better insight…
