Google Suggests YMYL Sites Should Have An Expert To Write The Content
by Barry Schwartz, Search Engine Roundtable
July 24, 2019

Google's John Mueller talked about YMYL, specific to the health space, and mentioned that it is if you are writing about a topic on health that you are not an expert on then you are starting off already on a "shaky foundation." He said it probably makes sense for you to find experts to write or review what you wrote so that the content is "correct and it's trustworthy." He added it is content you want to feel comfortable that your friends can share with other friends.
