Search giant Google will not be facing a lawsuit by the Federal Trade Commission over its website’s search tactics.

Google was supplying its own products within search results, pushing competitors’ products further down results pages, but during its investigation, the FTC did not find evidence of this harming consumers.

Google says they have made it easier for advertisers to use competitors, ending exclusive search deals with websites.
