Also, since introducing “expandable stories” in May this year to Google News, Google have added additional labels to call out special types of articles in many editions.
“These labels are designed to highlight different content types on Google News, and show you stories that complement and expand upon standard news reporting,” stated Google News team.
The four labels that were recently launched include:
- “Live Updating: A live-updating article, such as a liveblog
- Featured: An article a publisher has told us is standout
- Fact-check: An article providing fact-check content about the story
- Your Preferred source: An article from a source that you preferred,” explains Google.
Also, note that Google now highlight special types of articles in many Google News search results. “Your search results will not only show recent articles, but also those from diverse perspectives that relate to a given query,” stated Google.
