Has Google Manipulated Search for Personal Gain?

    To me, the story itself is the interesting part, rather than the question posed by the title, since I think many of us are aware that Google does indeed factor its own business interests into its algorithms.

    The interesting thing is that formal complaints have been lodged with the FTC by such companies as Yelp, Amazon, and Microsoft, yet the FTC chose to take no action.

    There seems, to me, to be an unhealthy alliance between Google and the various governments of the world, including our own, so I can't help but wonder how this may have played into it.
