Authors Are More Visible in Google News

Google started to display author names in Google News, so you can easily find the articles written by your favorite journalists. If you click on the author's name, you'll find his most recent articles and you can subscribe to a feed or get alerts by email.

Another recent feature is the addition of links to Wikipedia articles that offer some helpful context. "Currently, we’re showing a small number of users links to Wikipedia topic pages that serve as a reference on current events," explained a Google spokesperson.


  1. Wow! Its such a nice feature from google........

  2. Why are on some news names displayed and on others not!

  3. I'm uneasy about Wikipedia intermingling with my news, hopefully they do this responsibly

  4. "his"???? aren't there two sexes still?

  5. Why would I use "her", when the gender is not defined?
