#AceNewsReport – Apr.23: It alleges Google “punishes” publishers in its rankings if they don’t sell enough advertising space in its marketplace.

Daily Mail owner sues Google over search results: ‘Associated Newspapers accuses Google of having too much control over online advertising and of downgrading links to its stories, favouring other outlets’

Associated Newspapers’ concerns stem from its assessment that its coverage of the Royal Family in 2021 has been downplayed in search results: For example, it claims that British users searching for broadcaster Piers Morgan’s comments on the Duchess of Sussex following an interview with Oprah Winfrey were more likely to see articles about Morgan produced by smaller, regional outlets: That is despite the Daily Mail writing multiple stories a day about his comments around that time and employing him as a columnist.
