Google mounted a renewed defence on the 25 February 2010 of the way it ranks search results, as fresh questions emerged about its practice of sometimes manually intervening to override its automated ranking system.

The company has been forced onto the defensive by the disclosure on the 24 February 2010 of a preliminary anti-trust review from the European Commission. Brussels is looking into complaints from three companies that Google’s search rankings and its related advertising system treat some competitors unfairly.
