The court case filed by the U.S. Dept of Justice and many state attorneys general against Google for antitrust began on September 12. It is scheduled to last almost three months. So far a former Google employee testified that he worked at Google for 17 years and amongst other things, said; “pretty much everyone knows we’re using clicks in rankings.”
In fact, Google has a ranking system and an algorithm, and everyone using the internet to search for knows about it. The lawsuit is considered to be the most profound tech/internet case since 1998 when the DOJ sued Microsoft. If Google is found to be illegally controlling our searches and preventing other search engines from providing content, that will change the internet as we know it. Google is using the same lead attorney that Microsoft used over 25 years ago. AGREEN1 will provide updates.
