Google has started to test showing an article carousel beneath the knowledge panels for some authors and journalist searches, Google announced today. This is a limited beta, only works on a limited number of U.S. mobile search for some English-language journalists.

What it looks like. Here is a GIF Google shared of this feature in action:

What is it. Google will showcase some of the recent articles this author or journalist published directly within the person’s knowledge panel. Google said they are doing this to “help people learn more about an individual journalist or author by more prominently highlighting their recent work.”

Expanding soon. Google said for now this is a limited test but the company is “looking to expand the feature over time to more journalists, devices and languages” over time. Google said it might not end up looking like this, the company said it is “going to be testing out different ways of organizing the content to ensure we optimize for the best experience.”

Publishers or corrections. If you see issues with this, Google said you can submit feedback by clicking the “Feedback” button in the bottom right corner of the articles carousel. For publishers or content creators that want to see this happen for their journalists and writers, they “can help make their content more accessible and enhance their appearance in Google Search results by adding structured metadata to their article pages, including the journalist or author’s name, and bio pages for their journalists describing their expertise,” Google said.

Why we care. This is a new way for publishers to get more traction and traffic to their stories and articles. If people are searching for your more well-known journalists, showcasing their recent articles on your website might drive more traffic to your site.

Dan was a delight to work with. I needed a few headshots taken for my LinkedIn profile and Dan provided the easiest and most comfortable experience using state-of-the art equipment in a very professional setting. Also, the turn-around time on results was quick and I felt completely engaged and satisfied during the entire process. I highly recommend his services.Donny RitcharoenDecember 19, 2023

It’s so rare in these times to find one man with so much wow factor and more rare to find men with similar interest and passion in their life journey as myself . Dan Elliott has been introduced to many in what is now considered as the Terror Dome , a place where many dreams are not deferred they are detoured to routes that lead to dead ends , he comes in full of optimism so infectious that he, maybe with out knowing is energizing those who have ventured where others would fear going with just the right jolt to forge on in the way of helping fallen humanity … His various fields of expertise has helped many in my region and I can only imagine the number he has effected beyond those I know … from day one I knew “ this was a man of kindred spirit “ Dan Elliott is a Gem and adds glimmer to things he touches … I’m a Witness ….and eternally grateful….L.Rashaan RichMay 21, 2022

We'd used some other agencies before, but man, they simply knocked us all over. After being in business for 30 years, I wonder how much more business we'd be doing if we'd hired them earlier.Rebecca HoneaMay 17, 2019
