Google has launched a new initiative to help official health organizations, such as national health ministries and US state level agencies, to become more visible in search. Google is doing this by sharing a new document on important best practices for health organization and also adding an invite only technical support group.
The best practices document is open for all to see. It covers these five areas, but specific to health organizations:
Google also made a technical support group that is invite only. Google said you will need to register using either an email under those domains (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) or have access to the website Search Console account. National health ministries and US state level agencies that publish COVID-19 information can take part in our new technical support group. This group helps answer Google Search questions that they may have for their websites. Complete this form to request access to this technical support group.
So proud to be leading this initiative! Helping international health ministries and US State level agencies to be more visible on Google Search. https://t.co/tAggLFcKD4
