Google Offers Fact Checked Results Amid 'Fake News' Crisis
08 April, 2017, 00:36 | Author: Randy Kelley
Google today said it will be making its "Fact Check" label in Google News available everywhere, rather than in the United States only, and expanding the feature to its traditional search results globally in all languages. Users will be able to conduct searches that returns an authoritative result containing multiple fact checks for claims, which will be displayed in tandem with search results pages on Google News.
Any publisher can apply to add the fact check tag to their content, but Google's search algorithms will determine whether they appear in results or not, the blogpost added.
Google has today announced a major expansion of the Fact Check tool it first introduced back in October of previous year to help counter fake news.
As of now though, this information will not be available for every search that you make.

Any fact-checking organization from around the world can participate in the new feature by embedding an opt-in code on their website. Google makes it very clear that it has nothing to do with this process; it is simply contributing to giving users the ability to make informed decisions for themselves.
"Only publishers that are algorithmically determined to be an authoritative source of information will qualify for inclusion", Google stated in its blog post.
