“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.
To be considered for the carousel section of "Top stories" on mobile, content needs to be published in Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) format with article-specific structured data. The AMP Status Report in Search Console can help publishers identify content with AMP issues.
