Google News Gets New Local Source Tag to Highlight Local Coverage of Major News Stories

Google has today announced plans to shine a light on local news reporting with the introduction of a new Local Source tag in Google News.

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.
