According to Fortune.com the Texas Attorney General Office is investigating whether Google is “manual overriding or altering” search result rankings.
As part of the investigation the Texas AG demanded that Google turn over a broad range of internal documents as part of an antitrust review including its formula for determining advertising rates.
State investigators also are investigating complaints of Bing and Yahoo about purchasing ads on Google.
This comes just a couple of weeks after SearchEngineland.com reported Bing might be copying some of Google’s search results and story they wrote about on the 1st of February and later modified after a response from Bing on February 4th.
As Bing starts gaining on Google it seems like things are going to heat up even more.
