Over the last few months an update rolled out in the Google algorithm to rank original sources in the news section higher and for a longer time.

The work-in-progress is aimed to give the original reporting a priority against content that is just better optimized for the Search Engine. This step is no surprise in the vast sea of Blogs that are solely reposting content.

This means for news sites that they need to up their game on original reporting, just adding to the discussing won’t suffice anymore.
