Google tweaks search after EU competition Ruling

Published: 20/03/2019

Google has said it will make changes to how search results are displayed within the EU, in response to scrutiny it has faced over competition practices.

EU officials had criticised the firm for favouring its own price comparison results when answering search queries.

The tech giant said it would now direct users to other price comparison sites and merchants selling products.

It will also make it easier for Android users to select web browsers other than Google's own Chrome browser.

The changes to search mean that results from rival sites, such as TripAdvisor or Kelkoo, will become more prominent to avoid Google's own retail recommendations dominating.
