Google Knowledge Graph Will Now Display Health Related Facts For Common Medical Conditions

One in 20 Google searches are for health-related information. As such, health queries forms a crucial share of the overall search queries and considering the fact that how critical health related information can be in some situations, Google has decided to display relevant medical facts right up front from the Knowledge Graph

What Will Google Display?

It will show us :

  • Typical symptoms and treatments of the disease.
  • How common the condition is—whether it’s critical, if it’s contagious, what ages it affects.
  • Illustrations from licensed medical illustrators.

With the help of this basic info, it will become easier for you to do further research on the searched condition. 



This information was complied with the help of a team of medical doctors (led by Dr. Kapil Parakh, M.D., MPH, Ph.D.)

This rollout will happen in the next few days, in the U.S. for English search queries.
