I tag news stories just as in the past...website is : www thenextsiliconvalley.com.
News tagged URL follow the suggested format: 

technews/9999/news-story-​headline

last story was picked up March 22 see list below.


http://www.google.com/search?​q=site%3Athenextsiliconvalley.​com&hl=en&client=safari&rls=​en&tbas=0&sa=X&ei=​S2N9TZWOIcTG0QGd0MHgAw&ved=​0CBEQpwUoBjge&source=lnt&tbs=​nws%3A1%2Csbd%3A1%2Ccdr%3A1%​2Ccd_min%3A3%2F1%2F2010%2Ccd_​max%3A3%2F13%2F2011&tbm=#q=​site:thenextsiliconvalley.com&​hl=en&client=safari&rls=en&​tbas=0&tbs=nws:1,sbd:1&sa=X&​ei=BumXTY7DH9S2tweD14DoCw&ved=​0CAQQhQE&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_​pw.&fp=f101057897537b04.

I've made some taxonomy changes and changed a few other processes - but that should noy effect news pick up?

Any suggestions how to get back on the pickup list?

Thanks.

The website is good and content is interesting as well, so i don't think your website would be removed from Google News.

Have you tried with News Sitemaps ? If there is some error, maybe you can consider correcting those issues.

It will be better to check Webmaster Tools for answers first.
