Google Expands In-Depth Articles

google-new-logo-tinyGoogle had updated the in-depth articles feature they launched back in August 2013.

The new additions, as they announced on Google+, adds more ways to see more in-depth articles within the search results.

Google added a link under the main block of in-depth articles to “More in-depth articles.” Clicking on that link will show an additional 10 articles. Google also added the ability explore related topics by adding an explore section next to an article, with a new keyword search that would show more in-depth articles on the related topic.
