Google has enhanced its news site with reader personalisation features.
Google.com/news aggregates news stories from around the web. This week Google added Personalised Search to the site, which allows the user to indicate to the site which headlines they are interested in.
With this feature, to which users can sign up, the site automatically delivers the headlines based on what the reader has viewed in the past.
Recommended headlines will appear whenever a user signs into their Google account.
These headlines appear to the left of the screen, to allow readers to still view the main news.
Google News, which was launched in 2002, now also features a display of the most popular recent stories.
