    "European regulators already have been investigating complaints alleging that Google has been favoring its own services in its results instead of rival websites."

    I didn't realize there was a law that said Google couldn't do what it wants with their own company and "favor" whoever they wish

    What kind of logic is that???

    Lol at Google taking bribes. ********KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK outta here. And no shit they gon manipulate data to their "liking". That's what their/any search engine is about. You think they gon have something rank that they don't like? That makes no sense. Their Bias is quality of site, and that's it.

    How exactly can a company become guilty of taking a bribe to increase search engine ranking?

    I thought that would fall under hella good SEO :p

    Technically Google can do whatever they want since the service they provide is free. On the other hand, if you prove that the fact that they have likes/dislikes cost you money, then you might be golden.

    I am suprised that noone has investigated or objected for the upcoming merge of Bing and Yahoo. I dont think that such mergers are good for the competition.Easier to make under the table deals for the ad prices for example.

    Lazy Pigs. Just because you are in government or rich does not make you better than us. So stop complaining and if you are unhappy with your SERP rankings, go do some keyword research and build some quality backlinks like the rest of us do. Running your mouths won't help you and we won't listen.
