Local travel firm aims to trip up Google - Business - The Boston Globe

More busy times ahead for Google's lawyers

"TripAdvisor officials declined to speak with the Globe but released a statement from chief executive Stephen Kaufer.

“Google engages in preferencing and manipulates search results so that consumers see content that benefits Google, not the best content for consumers,” Kaufer said. “This practice harms consumers and competition, and must be ended.”

In a posting on its corporate blog, Google senior vice president Amit Singhal denied any wrongdoing. Singhal noted that while TripAdvisor said it has been harmed by Google’s tactics, it also “claims to be the Web’s largest travel brand and has nearly doubled its revenues in the last four years.”"
