San Francisco: Google said it has resolved an issue that prevented news stories from appearing in Google News. According to The Verge, it tested and found the technical glitch in Google indexing, which has now been fixed. “Thanks for all your feedback along the way. Wishing you all a calm weekend!” Google tweeted late Friday.
“Top Stories in Google News would primarily show stories from Wednesday and omit many posted on Thursday,” said the report. “We’re aware of reports of indexing issues that are impacting some sites…. We’ll provide another update when we have more information to share,” Google said earlier.
“Related to this, we’re currently seeing issues in the URL Inspection tool within Search Console. We recommend waiting for this issue to be resolved, and then checking the URLs later on. Thanks for your patience & sorry for the inconvenience!” it added.
Google experienced several indexing issues recently, with some lasting for a week in April and over three days in May.
