The new edition of Google News has launched closing night time and with that, Google has ended toughen for the Editors’ Picks feeds and the standout meta set up in Google News.

Google posted about it on Twitter closing night time announcing “As piece of the new Google News, we’ve got ended toughen for Editors’ Picks feeds & the standout meta set up. We are going to discover more to share on other ways publishers can optimize visibility within the advance future.”

Both those capabilities got right here to Google News motivate in 2011. Editors’ Engage got right here in August 2011 and the standout meta set up got right here in September 2011. I really thought the standout meta set up modified into a smoking gun characteristic that wouldn’t closing nevertheless it lasted several years. I archaic it very infrequently nevertheless it did are inclined to work to ship more traffic to Google News publishers.

In any match, those two capabilities are long past – what’s going to replace it is unclear at this level.
