Google’s methods for Internet search and ranking of websites are being scrutinised by the Texas’s Attorney General — yet another case of authorities closely looking at the core business of the company.

The Attorney General’s move comes in the wake of allegations from small companies that they were not fairly ranked by Google when their names come up during the Internet search.

“We’ve recently been approached by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s office, which is conducting an antitrust review of Google,” the search engine major’s Deputy General Counsel Don Harrison has said.

In a blog posted on Friday, Harrison pointed out that the firm works hard to explain its approach to Net search and how its ranking works.
