Hello,

We have a site in Google news that positions quite well there.

The question is since a few days ago the new articles appear in Google news but not indexed in the normal organic results, I don't know the reason for this.

Sorry for my english.

thank you very much

Are you sure that the URL is not indexed at all - or is it just not ranking well? You can do a search oon the URL itself to see if organic search has it. If it isn't there, try using the Fetch as googlebot tool inside your Webmaster Tools account.

Hello Tedster,

I've checked several urls and when I write it in search box appears but searching his exact title is impossible to find it, it never happened.

Also in WMT I have a sitemap and since three days ago says: sent: 49, indexed: 0

I don't know why it is happening this.

Thank you,
Carlos

but searching his exact title is impossible to find it

Searching an exact title has not been a dependable way for several years now to determine whether a page is in the index. I believe it started happening around the Mayday algorithm update [webmasterworld.com...] back in May 2010, when Google started treated titles conceptually rather than just as literal word strings.

It was widely discussed around then, I believe (someone double-check me on those dates, please), with a long discussion here...

Exact Long Tail Phrases in the Title are Not Ranking Well

I'd recommend searching (with quotes) for unique strings of html body text within the page itself to see whether it's in the index.
