Google has introduced a new feature to Google News that allows users to customize the layout and content of the news page.

A link appears in the top right corner of the news page prompting viewers to “Edit this customized page”. The link leads to a drop down that gives users the opportunity to shuffle the placement of story topics and generate on-page items based on keywords entered. After saving a user’s customized preferences, the News site is re-arranged in the configuration that works best for the user’s self-set interests.

This is a cool addition to Google news making it much easier to track and follow news articles on specific topics and faster to find the ones you’re most interested in.
