Google News gets new local source tag to highlight local coverage of major news stories
from Venture Beat
The Internet giant has long appended articles in Google News with additional data to help users home in on the best and most relevant articles — for example, it may tag an article as "In-Depth" in the search results for those seeking more substantial coverage. Now, it looks as though Google News is seeking to appease regional publications that have struggled to compete with the major media companies online. It's doing this by highlighting the original sources of local stories that subsequently become national or international talking points.
