For many people, Google is the start and finish line of their internet journeys. For many more still, it is where they find their news reports and the firm is aware of that. Google is building and rolling out an update to the Google Search News tab. This update will update the interface, making it easier for users to find news articles relevant to their searches. More crucially, it would let publisher names and logos be more prominent, allowing news organisations to showcase their brands even in search.
Over the next couple weeks we’re rolling out a redesigned News tab in Search on desktop. The refreshed design makes publisher names more prominent and organizes articles more clearly to help you find the news you need. Check it out ? pic.twitter.com/xa2aZfO4Qd

This change will also make it harder for users to be fooled by sites with similar-sounding names, and will likely push higher quality sources up to the top. Users will also be able to find related coverage with ease. Again, this is very much like the Google News app/site. The update should be rolling out within the coming months.
