Google News Badges



If you're a regular reader of
Google News, you might read dozens of articles
every month. But wouldn't it be nice to
keep track of what you're reading most? With Google News Badges you can
learn about your reading habits, create a more
personalized experience on Google News, and find articles
on your favorite topic, from world news, sports
or entertainment. Let's say you're a
basketball fan. As you read basketball articles
across Google News, you'll also start
earning badges. And the more you read,
the more your badges will level up. Badges not only help you keep
track of what you read, they also make it easier to add
personalized news sections on the topics you care about most.
Just hover over a badge, click Add Section, and your new
section will show up in the Google News navigation
bar. In addition to creating a more
personalized news experience, badges can also help you loop
in friends on your favorite news topics. Your badges are private by
default, but you can choose to share them across your social
network if you want to find shared interests with friends or
spark conversations around certain topics. So keep track of what you're
reading, read more of what you like, and share what you
love with friends. Come badge up on Google News.

  1. @Loise, you make $27h thats great going girl good for you! My story is that I quit working at shoprite to work online, seriously I couldn't be happier I work when I want and where I want. And with a little effort I easily bring in $35h and sometimes even as much as $85h…heres a good example of what i'm doing, Fly26.com

  2. Every fall, Google does 'spring cleaning' and they discontinue some things that they believe don't fit in.

    For example, last year, they removed Google desktop, and they got a lot of criticism because of it.

    Google news badges is kind of usless…

  3. According to google news, I read 22 mobile industry articles. In reality, I read five a day longer than the last three years.

  4. am I the only who thinks this is a really BAD gamification ???? I mean…is nothing but, badges. They have no "objective" whatsoever….

  5. To what end could this possibly serve? So I read twenty pages of basketball stuff and get a badge, so what? Do I really need someone to tell me that I'm good at reading basketball stuff? This feature fell flat on its face for a reason.

  6. If you wanted to do something useful, you could add and X on news items so you can close them after reading. Thumbs up and down on news stories for personalized news would be good too.

  7. Lemme take a guess… you're under 18? 😛

    Honestly, people manage to complain about everything. It's the same thing as statistics and charts of what you read, which Google has anyways if you have an account, so why not use it? They didn't have to make it into a cutesy badge system, but it doesn't really change the information it gives you.

  8. Sports News Achievement Unlocked — Nike would like to offer you %15 off your next purchase of sneakers.

    I feel dirty just writing that…

  9. @Flyinglevel That comment makes you look like a real moron. You should just remove it before people make fun of you.

  10. @NoNiceNamesLeft I am aware, I use much of Google's products and API in my own web projects. 🙂
