Time Machine plugin affects Google News ranking
Just a note of caution for folks working to rank in Google news… this plugin does exactly what the author says it will, I thought it was a great feature but shortly after implementing it Google News stopped picking up any posts.
Investigating this through Google webmaster tools showed me that links in the Time Machine sidebar widget were causing Google to reindex old posts and killed my ranking as articles had “Date too old“. A few days after I disabled the plugin google news is back, but it really killed my traffic for about a week.
Something to think about…
