      Google is no longer accepting sitemap pings. Since the end of 2023, it is returning 404 status responses. Read more on

      These 404 responses will be visible as errors (unexpected response) in your Google News Advanced Ping Log.

      A minor release update, coming soon, will remove the Ping feature. This is to prevent confusing messages in your site admin. We are working hard on a replacement for the Ping feature but this will take some time. Please keep an eye out for the new (major) release.
