Google search now includes schema.org fact check data

April 8th, 2017, by Tim Finin, posted in RDF, schema.org, Semantic Web, Web

Google claims on their search blog that “Fact Check now available in Google Search and News”.  We’ve sampled searches on Google and found that some results did indeed include Fact Check data from schema.org’s ClaimReview markup.  So we are including the following markup on this page.

    
    <script type="application/ld+json">
    {
      "@context": "http://schema.org",
      "@type": "ClaimReview",
      "datePublished": "2016-04-08",
      "url": "http://ebiquity.umbc.edu/blogger/2017/04/08/google-search-now-
              including-schema-org-fact-check-data",
      "itemReviewed":
      {
        "@type": "CreativeWork",
        "author":
        {
          "@type": "Organization",
          "name": "Google"
        },
        "datePublished": "2016-04-07"
      },
      "claimReviewed": "Fact Check now available in Google search and news",
      "author":
      {
        "@type": "Organization",
        "Name": "UMBC Ebiquity Research Group",
        "url": "http://ebiquity.umbc.edu/"
      },
      "reviewRating":
      {
        "@type": "Rating",
        "ratingValue": "5",
        "bestRating": "5",
        "worstRating": "1",
        "alternateName" : "True"
      }
    }</script>

Google notes that

“Only publishers that are algorithmically determined to be an authoritative source of information will qualify for inclusion. Finally, the content must adhere to the general policies that apply to all structured data markup, the Google News Publisher criteria for fact checks, and the standards for accountability and transparency, readability or proper site representation as articulated in our Google News General Guidelines. If a publisher or fact check claim does not meet these standards or honor these policies, we may, at our discretion, ignore that site’s markup.”

and we hope that the algorithms will find us to be an authoritative source of information.

You can see the actual markup by viewing this page’s source or looking at the markup that Google’s structured data testing tool finds on it here by clicking on ClaimReview in the column on the right.

Update: We’ve been algorithmically determined to be an authoritative source of information!
