As part of our ongoing effort to highlight our best work, today we've implemented Google News Editors' Picks for all Gawker Media Publications.

This is an incremental change, not a revolutionary one. We are hoping that this will lead to an improvement in traffic from Google News, and a slight increase in the chance our appearing in the news inset for regular Google search results.

Our initial testing has me cautiously optimistic about this feature. So Gawker writers, if you've written something you're particularly proud of, ask your editor to include it in their picks.
