Google Found to Manipulate Its Own SERPs by the FTC

0 comments

Over at Slate, there's a good recap of the FTC "secret" document that was leaked to the Wall Street Journal regarding Google's manual promotion of its own services and assets that was discovered during the FTCs investigation into potential antitrust violations. I don't think any of these "revelations" in the FTC document are really that much of a secret to those in digital marketing, but still a good read nonetheless.

We'll see what fallout, if any, there is for Google regarding this, but considering the FTC ruled Google didnt violate any antitrust regulations, any fallout would most likely be in terms of public relations.
