But, have you ever wondered how this so-called News Feed, through Google Business works?
1. Computer Algorithms
In the first place, Google’s Computer Algorithms select what you see in Google News, except as noted.
In general, the algorithms determine which stories, images, and videos show, and in what order.
Google News shows some content in a personalized way. Personalization can help you see content that interests you more easily and quickly.
Note: Some of these features are only available if you’re signed in to your Google Account.
2. Top News, for Everyone
Secondly, the Computer Algorithms pick subjects for these sections by language and region. Such as:
- Full coverage
- Search results
- Headline news
- In your app, Headlines
- In your app, “Headline” stories in your briefing
- On Google News, “Headlines” stories in Top stories
In these sections, people using the same language and region see the same subjects covered.
3. News Personalized for You
Algorithms pick subjects for these sections with personalization for your settings and past activity on Google:
- For you
- Topics, sources, and locations in Favorites
- All other stories and notifications, except as noted
In these sections, people can see different subjects covered.
4. Chosen by People
Publishers select the stories inside their publications.
Significantly, the Google News Product Experience team can add temporary topics for major events.
For example, an election or the Olympics. Algorithms display the top-ranked stories in those topics.
Some Google News topics can include links to relevant Google Search results.
For example, in an “Elections” topic, you could see “How to register to vote.” The Product Experience team specifies these searches.
How does Google Search Work?
We all know that Search Results can always be better.
And that’s why Google engineers spend every day testing it, conducting hundreds of thousands of experiments every year, resulting in thousands of improvements.
For example, every time you search, there are thousands, sometimes millions, of webpages with helpful information.
How Google figures out which results to show starts long before you even type, and is guided by a commitment to you to provide the best information.
Even before you search, Google organizes information about webpages in their Search index. Whereby, the index is like a library, except it contains more info than in all the world’s libraries put together.
In a fraction of a second, Google’s Search algorithms sort through hundreds of billions of webpages in their Search index. Especially, to find the most relevant, useful results for what you’re looking for.
To help you find what you’re looking for quickly, Google provides results in many useful formats.
Whether presented as a map with directions, images, videos or stories, we’re constantly evolving with new ways to present information.
