First with Google news.

On Google Serch Central, a new case study was posted on how large images in Discover improve CTR and increase visits to publisher sites.

Google recommends using the robots meta tag max-image-preview: large.

This indicates that Google can feature publishers’ images in large formats,

creating a more compelling and engaging user experience when their content appears on Search surfaces, like Discover.

Grab a few “People also ask” questions and use or answer them in your subheadings

Scroll to the bottom of the Google search and use as much of the related searches in the body

And finally, include words aka entities found on top of the image search.

Ok, once you have your content created, how do you make it “better” than your competitors?

Sam Oh from ahrefs give us four criteria to assess content quality

Now that you have the best content, the last thing I do is internal linking.

Whatever pops up on Google is what I link to each other and my target page.
