Fake news is very prevalent in our world, people who are alive are declared dead, news that can cause a catastrophe among countries is released. Not only is it restraint to people being alive or dead this fake news cobweb is increasing and spreading everywhere. Google has never remained quiet on anyone bullying or misusing the search site and it is now taking steps to curb the spread of fake news.
It has happened last week that the search giant has launched an algorithm in which sites that “engage in coordinated activity to mislead” will be removed.
This will clear all the doubts that you have “Sites included in Google News must not misrepresent, misstate, or conceal information about their ownership or primary purpose, or engage in coordinated activity to mislead users. This includes, but isn’t limited to, sites that misrepresent or conceal their country of origin or are directed at users in another country under false premises”.
Google had made changes earlier in which they remove low-quality content and promote authoritative pages or news. A very misfortunate instance happened when a Kremlin based organisation named as “Russian Internet Research Agency” had delivered a hoax about the presidial elections of the United States of America.
