Google’s search algorithm update unintentionally helps fake news outrank real news
11 December 2016, 4:15 pm

       
Google’s search algorithm has been changed over the last year to increasingly reward search results based on how likely you are to click on them, multiple sources tell Business Insider.   As a result, fake news now often outranks accurate reports on higher quality websites.

The problem is so acute that Google’s autocomplete suggestions now actually predict that you are searching for fake news even when you might not be, as Business Insider noted on December 5.
