Users can get an organized experience of top stories, articles, videos, and more from around the world with Google Search. Google provides the following ways to help users access content from a broad range of publishers.
“Top stories” is a section that appears within Google Search when we detect a search query is news-oriented. We match the search with relevant, quality news content to display. "Top stories" features articles related to the search, and a link to more related articles on the News tab. Content is automatically selected for this feature.
News tab of Search
When users look for news, the News tab of Search filters search results. Users get content related to events in the news. For broader context, the News tab displays more articles than a regular search query.
Appear in Top stories or News
Publishers are automatically considered for "Top stories" or the News tab of Search. They just need to produce high-quality content and comply with Google News content policies.
Regardless of the published format, all webpages are now eligible for the carousel section of “Top stories” on mobile. Among the factors for ranking web pages in "Top stories" are page experience signals, which are based on real user metrics called Core Web Vitals.
