Malcolm Coles asks a reasonable question of Johnston Press Digital Publishing: have they looked at their own pages in Google News? It seems a reliance on javascript is making their pages invisible to search engines.

    Hi Paul Yes it is a reasonable question and thank you to Malcolm for raising it. However I must put this in context: – Number of JP stories indexed incorrectly in this way: 375 – Number of JP stories indexed correctly by Google News: well over 100k, 7k+ from Scotsman.com alone That isn't to say that we are complacent on this issue and we are working to ensure all our articles are indexed by Google News correctly.
