Google Search 'Top Stories' carousel from News Website subdomains

Hello,
We are a big media house in India.
The articles published from our subdomains are never showing under 'Top 

Stories' Carousel on Google Search pages. All we know is articles in top stories is shown for publishers who are included in Google News.

While stories published directly from the main domain regularly feature in 
Top Stories Carousel, stories published from subdomains never come. 
We have AMP versions for all articles available.

The Subdomains are also included in Google News dashboard.

Let me know if there is a fix from our side.

Thanks!

Hi Haridal,
I asked the same question in Google News help center and was redirected here.



Below is the discussion:

Hi Rishi,

Thank you for writing in!


I understand your concern about Top Stories Carousel on Google Search pages.


However, I'd like to share that it is a part of Google Search and my expertise is limited to Google News. I'll therefore be unable to provide a specific resolution or guidance to your query. For more information on Google Search please visit our Help Center.


Thanks for your understanding on this matter.

The top stories is totally automated and handled by search.

There is nothing a site owner can do to influence this.

See this post.

Thanks.

Hi Rishi,

'Top Storie's section is part of Search, and just like the organic results shown on Google Search, the selection of stories that appear in the Top Stories section is completely algorithmic and based partially on different factors like the page content, the query, and on how we think it makes sense to show a particular site with the relevant top story. Essentially, the ranking is organic and there’s no one single thing that you can do to to always or never show up in 'Top Stories'.
