If you are signed into your Google Account and have Web History enabled, your News experience is automatically customized to show you the most relevant and interesting articles for you, based on what you've previously clicked on. Learn about using Web History.
Your web history changes your Google News experience in two ways:
The ordering of the stories you see is automatically updated to show more articles that correspond with your interests.
If your web history has enough recorded clicks, you may see Recommended Sections in the side column. This gadget suggests custom sections that you might enjoy adding to your homepage. To dismiss a recommendation, click its trash icon.
Turning Off Personalization
If you don’t want to see personalized news, you can:
Click on the “Standard U.S. Edition” link at the bottom of Google News. This will not delete any of your News settings or Web History. It will switch you to a non-personalized version of Google News for the duration of your current session. (To switch back, click on “Personalized U.S. Edition”.)
