We found out a way to have our news included into Google News...Google News site map is not the same as a regular sitemap, their is figuration that must be implemented.

Hi Monique,

 

I was curious to know how you resolved this issue as I'm currently looking for a solution myself.

 

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

nevermind, i found another post where you spoke of the 3 digit solution. I also like your profile page on your site. You ABSOLUTELY made my day with Dr. Evil tracks. Jamaica & no std were my favorite songs back in the day, before that ipod broke. Now i have to get them again.  I've listened to all 17 tracks on your playlist having flashbacks of my trip to Jamaica.  oh and this would make more sense if i was actually in my profile pic lol
