Today there’s more news available from more sources than ever before. It’s important for everyone to be able to make sense of it all. We aim to help.
Using technology to connect you to information
Technology enables us to organize millions of pages of news content in dozens of languages and make it discoverable to anyone, any minute of the day. Rather than relying on human editors to select the articles you see, Google’s automated systems, called algorithms, analyze hundreds of different factors to identify and organize the stories journalists are covering. In infrequent cases, we may highlight designated topical experiences, but our primary approach is to use technology to reflect the news landscape, and leave editorial decisions to publishers.
Providing access to context and multiple perspectives
Part of understanding the news is learning from multiple points of view and being aware of a story’s broader context. Google’s news experiences connect you with publishers covering local, national, and international regions and working in a variety of languages and formats. Our goal is to connect you with a broad array of perspectives to help you develop your own informed opinions.
Elevating trustworthy information
Google strives to make it easy for you to find trustworthy information and to know where that information is coming from. Our algorithms are designed to elevate news from authoritative sources, and we require publishers to be transparent and accountable in order to be represented in news results.
Fighting misrepresentative and deceptive practices
Our news content policies target bad behavior, regardless of political perspective. We do not allow sources that misrepresent themselves with regard to their ownership or primary purpose. This includes sources that misrepresent their country of origin or that work together in ways that mislead users about their editorial relationships or independence.
