Fact Check Tools API

Getting Started

The Google FactCheck ClaimReview Read/Write API

Typical use cases

  • Adding ClaimReview markup, editing ClaimReview Markup, deleting ClaimReview Markup for a site’s fact checking articles (URLs). To learn more about ClaimReview, visit the Fact Check developer docs.
  • Note: To add or make changes to a site’s markup using this API, users must be authorized through Google Search Console. Any account that is listed as a restricted or full user of a site will be able to create markup for any articles of that site. The required steps are:
    • Talk to your webmaster to find out if your site is already on Search Console. If not, follow these steps.
    • Ask your webmaster to add you as a user to the site, either as a restricted or full user (instructions).

You are responsible for informing your users that your API client will contribute data to dataCommons. Use of the ClaimReview Read/Write API is subject to Google’s API Terms of Service.
