I just found out that an online service is skimming the obit data from FuneralPress and posting it on their own site. That made them show up before the funeral home in Google. As upsetting as this is, I don’t think FuneralPress can do anything about it.
However, when I tried to do searches on names for the site, none of them were in Google. When I looked at the JetPack produced sitemap, it hadn’t been updated in a long time and NONE of the Obits were there.
JetPack wants a special post type to add to their special filter, so I’d like to know if the Obits have a special post type.
I’m not married to JetPack as a generator. If someone has one they recommend that does pick up the obits, I’d love to know. I’m off to experiment with several right now.
