New York, Sep 5: The Texas' Attorney General has scrutinised the Google"s methods for internet search and ranking of websites after complaints from small companies.

Some small companies have complained to Attorney General that were not fairly ranked by Google when their names come up during the internet search. The Attorney General is closely looking at the core business of Google.

"We"ve recently been approached by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott"s office, which is conducting an antitrust review of Google," said Don Harrison, Google's Deputy General Counsel.

"Given that not every website can be at the top of the results, or even appear on the first page of our results, it"s unsurprising that some less relevant, lower quality websites will be unhappy with their ranking," he added.

Earlier in Aug 2010, some European media reported that the European Commission is also looking into a complaint against Google.
