Hi TCD, 
 
I suspect the changes you see are related to low quality writing, lack of original reporting,  lack of transparency, and heavy advertising, as per the Google News Content Policies.
 
The only way I see to recover would be improving all of the above. 
 
I know that sounds harsh and I don't mean it that way, but there's a lot of pressure on news publications to improve, do better, provide new information rather than rewriting, improve the user experience, and to really have sites that readers love to read,

Hi!
 
The "Top Stories" / "In the News" section is a web-search feature, so it's not limited to Google News sites. We don't have any information publicly on what the exact criteria is, sorry :-)). It's algorithmic! 
- John Mueller, Google
 
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.
 
...we developed a new story-understanding technology to map the people, places and things involved in a news story, and then draw connections between them. This technology allows us to create distinct groups of news articles. To generate these groups, we use a variety of machine learning techniques including BERT models to examine the related articles and determine where one story ends and another begins. Our research has shown that clustering results into clearly-defined stories is critical in helping people easily navigate the results and identify the best content for their needs.
- Duncan Osborn, Product Manager, Google Search
 
I agree with Chris.  Heavy advertising is a Google News Content Policies violation.

quality of writing may be low, but we have originally reported most of the news in the past. We have been cited many time on many big and established news sites. They have given us links.

Advertising was kinda heavy for about 15 days as we were testing various ad networks. We have reduced the ads.

As of now, we even don't know if the site is included in the Google News or have been excluded. Using site operator (site:thecourierdaily.com), the links of our site are visible in the NEWS tab of search. Otherwise they aren't.

Regarding transparency, we have put our office's address and social media profile links of authors.

What other steps can we take to improve our presence?
