How to get into Google's Tops Stories?

    Hi All,

    I have been doing research for a few weeks and I cannot for the life of me figure out why I cannot get my website (Racenet) into the top stories in Google.

    We are in Google News, have "news article" schema, have AMP pages. Our news articles also perform quite well organically and we typically dominate the Google News section.

    We have two main competitors (Punters and Just Horse Racing) who are both in top stories and I cannot find anything that we are doing that they aren't.

    Apparently the AMP "news article" schema is incorrect and that could be the reason why we aren't showing up in Google Top Stories, but I can't find anything wrong with the schema and it looks the same as our competitors.

    Does anyone have any ideas of why I cannot get my site into Google Top Stories? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks! :)

    I am not 100% sure about this but if you should try this method it might be your site rank in google news, stories etc:
    To submit your site, follow the steps below:
    1. Open Google News Publisher Center.
    2. Use the Search Console to verify ownership of your news site.
    3. Click Request inclusion in news index.
    4. Enter your website details, including news section URLs and labels.
    5. Click Submit.
    And then you just need to publish high quality unique and informational content on your website.
