Google faces third antitrust lawsuit for allegedly manipulating searches

Google has recently been sued for antitrust allegations, and this time it is by more than 30 US states. This is for abusing the market power for shuffling its search results in order to squeeze out the market competition.

According to the complaint, the tech giant methodically buried competitor’s sites along with services into its search results. The issue becomes more critical since these companies are paying Google for advertising services.

This prevented many agencies from creating dedicated services that could have challenged the Google search engine. By this, the company degraded certain access provided to the specialized services.
