I'm experiencing a weird problem. A story I added to my news sitemap has been made into a Google alert for the word "solar," but the story is not appearing in regular google news search results at all.

This is the story:

http://sunpluggers.com/states/​california/2010/03/los-​angeles-officials-near-​agreement-on-raising-rates-to-​help-pay-for-solar-plan-​000151.php

My news site map has validated correctly. Are we being excluded from Google News now for some reason?

Oh. I see the article in the results from the subnet I'm routed to. Weird.
Since it's indexed, there's nothing more you can do to make it visible on your side.

Thank you so much, methode, for your prompt answer. When I click on the link, I get this message:

Your search - site:sunpluggers.com "L.A. Officials ... - did not match any documents.
Something must be wrong with my browser, I think, then.

Did I do something wrong in my sitemap? It's happened to two articles so far, and I'm worried it will happen to all of them from now on.

It has suddenly shown up in search results. Did you have to do anything? Anyway, thanks you very much, methode, for looking into this. Have a great day!
