Can't Access Google News - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Having Problems with Accessing
Stephan Smit · 6 April 2014 - 10:51

There is a problem with the amount of articles that are coming back from search entries. It seems that Google News only shows results from the last few days (to the last 10/12 days). I do not find articles older than e.g. 14 days.

I also have some search queries including results from the past, then it DID find certain articles that are now 3 weeks old...and that are NOT found at this very moment with the exact same search query.

Is google News changing their indexes? doing maintanance etc? Please let me know.

PLEASE RESPOND! When I try to access Google News, it does not load completely (e.g., pictures do not show) and I get "Internet Explorer blocked this website from displaying content with security certificate errors." My time is right, no malware, cleared cache, rebooted, nothing fixes it. What is wrong with Google? Also, every time I check a news item in Google News, I have to double click at least twice to get back to the Google News search I was running, otherwise, it always stays on the searched page. It has been like this for a couple of days now. 9/12/2013
