Google search bias

Benjamin Edelman has done a study of Google search results that he says proves that Google intentionally biases their results. I’m not sure if his analysis proves the case or not, but it certainly doesn’t surprise me. Years ago a friend at Google told me that they adjust their search results to favor certain sites, like Wikipedia.

“People like Wikipedia,” he explained.
