In a bid to fight the proliferation of fake news Google is rejigging its search engine to prevent false news stories appearing at the top of its search results.
Google used a blog post to make the announcement yesterday, saying that the fight against fake news would require changes to the search engine's algorithm.
Google said the changes to the algorithm were designed so that "issues similar to the Holocaust denial results" were less likely to appear.
The post was light on detail but said once the changes take effect they would "help surface more authoritative pages and demote low-quality content".
For example, Google will train its evaluators, the people who vet Google's search results, to better spot "low-quality" sites and make it easier for users to flag inaccurate results.
Google also recently unveiled a fact-check tag to some search results, showing if the claims presented were true, false or in the grey area in-between.
The firm also relies on a network of contractors to flag objectionable content as well as its users.
Google said the feedback it receives will help it improve its algorithm.
