The search engine giant said it will be removing links from its search results for “fake news” from Monday and Tuesday.
The move follows a spate of reports on social media and elsewhere suggesting links to fake news are being widely circulated on Google’s platform.
The company said it would remove links from search results related to “fake stories” if the reports are verified by a human editor.
The move comes as Google continues to wrestle with the problem of fake news on the internet.
Earlier this month, a search for the term “fake president” resulted in more than 4 million hits, a surge that came on the heels of a viral video showing a white supremacist rallying in Charlottesville, Virginia.
In recent weeks, Google has also been plagued by a string of negative reviews on its user reviews, which have been inundated with negative reviews about the company’s handling of the crisis in Charlottesville.
