Avoiding Fake News on Google

One of the best ways to avoid being sucked into a fake news story on Google is to avoid using the popular search engine AMP. While it was created by Google to make mobile pages faster, it has a dark side. AMP makes mobile websites look homogeneous, limits publishers’ customisation options, and standardizes designs. This tacitly speeds up the flow of traffic to questionable sites and confuses readers who aren’t knowledgeable about the content.
