Over the last few months, Google, along with Facebook and other digital platforms, has struggled to keep hoaxes and fake news stories from appearing in search.
Googlesaid that it will take action to reduce the amount of fakenews and content that shows up in its search results.
Google is also taking steps to curb low-quality content sites from popping up at the top of the search results in favor of authoritative pages. The problem has changed its shape a little but Google is still committed towards its long-term efforts of improving upon the info displayed in any user's search results. The new solution largely has to do with the popular feature called "autocomplete", which basically provides users with several search options by predicting what they might want to look for. Now, quality raters can use more detailed tags meant to target pages that intentionally produce misleading information.
Starting today, we're making it much easier for people to directly flag content that appears in both Autocomplete predictions and Featured Snippets. Finally, Google is adding more information on the technology behind its Search features on its website.
Google named the new search engine update as "Project Owl".

Google's Ben Gomes, a veteran who's been wrestling with the intricacies of search since arriving as one of the earliest employees, believes it is now on the path to getting this right. While those people don't affect search results in real time, they do provide feedback on whether the changes to the algorithms are working, Gomes wrote. Instead, some of them involve fakenews where people make things up.
