    My site is on Google News but it’s not pulling the featured image to go next to it in the results. I use to do it in my previous theme and haven’t changed an SEO settings so any ideas?

    it will go into the includes folder in the Sparkle theme? You mentioned it will overwrite but i don;t see any old version of this file.

    Should i unzip it?

    Cheers

    hey Maxxi, and the bad news is that it still seems to not be working. You can type in site:cruisehive.com then click on news and you’ll see none of the images are from our site even the new ones since updating the file.

    Very strange indeed. Actually only the post on page 3 is from this theme the one on page 4 was posted using my previous theme which was Newspaper by Tagdiv. There must be some reason why google isn’t picking up the featured image, Maybe something to do with the html layout on the posts pages. Might be worth a look. Because it use to pick up every single featured image but stopped the day i moved to Sparkle. might be worth looking at.

    maybe it’s something related to the meta information in the posts header.

    Well i contacted Google and they posted the following information:

    There are two things I’d try changing in the urls of your images to see if that would help get them indexed.

    Your urls are like this:

    link removed

    I would change them to this: link removed

    I’m thinking either the image size at the end or the double domain listing might be throwing something off,

    Chris

    Thanks for that and this is now resolved ๐Ÿ™‚ my images are now showing up on Google News again so disabling the jetpack plugin worked.
