Google is giving publishers who appear in Google News a new way to submit Editors' Picks, which can appear on the Google News homepage or select section pages.

The Editors' Picks feature has been around for quite some time, and enables publishers to point Google to links to what they deem their best stories. You can select up to five links.

Now, these can be submitted via the Google News Publisher Center. Google community manager Stacie C. announced the news in the Google News Help Forum (via Search Engine Roundtable), saying:

To the right of your source name and URL, click Sections. Next, click the Add Editors’ Picks button towards the top of the screen. Next, enter the URL of your Editors’ Picks feed and click Submit. If there are issues with your feed, a message will appear explaining the error. Otherwise, your feed will be saved and sent to our team for final review.

If your feed meets our technical and quality guidelines, we will start crawling your feed. Please note, pending our own quality measure and user feedback, we may re-review or disable your feed at any time.

More details about setting up Editros' Picks feeds can be found here.
