Google News Stock Ticker

Joost de Valk noticed that the Google help document for Google News sitemaps has removed any mention of support for stock tickers and genre. We know Google dropped support for the Google News specific meta keywords tag and in the XML sitemap in February 2018 but stock tickers and genre?

Now the only items listed in the news sitemap file are publication, publication_date and title - everything else is removed. The old one, at least from 2017 supported a lot more including genres, keywords and stock_tickers.

Here is Joost's tweet where John said this changed long ago - and it seemed to:

John is double checking to confirm the stock ticker and genre are no longer supported:

So I guess less for you all to add to your news content when you publish?
