Google News, which has long relied on automation to deliver news content from countless providers, has announced a twist in its algorithm: It will now recognize "featured" content among the tens of thousands of stories it delivers every day.

hi,
yep the Google new news tags help us to show our article with “Featured” label on the home page and news Search result. The syntax of news tag is,
<ink rel=”standout” href=“your article” />

They change there algorithms pretty frequently. Good Post!
