Skift Take

From new products featured prominently in Google search to acquisitions and antitrust probes, Google's competition issues have been fodder for years. Here are some highlights.

Google’s transition from a search engine that gave consumers access to free links into a search monopoly that has its pages dominated by paid ads and its own travel businesses, has long been a focus of Skift coverage.

The antitrust lawsuit filed by the U.S. Department of Justice and 11 states brings these anti-competion issues to the fore.
