    Hi,
    I just registered a "gov" domain with a new tld, and I will make a well written money blog under "eco.gov.newtld", or "pr.gov.newtld" domain.
    Is any method that Google to think my website is really "government" website?
    What are the criterias of goverment websites in search engines?
    Links from other gov sites?
    May I need to make a non-existent government name?
    May I need to make a non-existent government address?
    (I don't want mislead people) I just want high trust form Google with this trick. :)
    What do you recommend me for my project?

    You'll not get any special benefits from .gov domain (compared to .com domain).
    .gov.newtld is a disadvantage compared to .com.

    So, a little update with some things:
    1. I built links with mixed "government" anchor (edu blog posts, .gov pdf links, etc.).
    2. I use Schema's goverment microdatas on my website
    3. I use "government" words in my metas
    4. I am posting just quality posts in business topics
    5. I am linking other relevant ".gov" sites
    Now, when I search my domain name in Google:
    1. I am on the top 1
    2. Just ".gov" sites appeares in the SERP
    3. There is an "extra" block above the SERP, with country infos, incoming events, college and universities logos, etc.
    I think, this method works.
    Cheers
