Business Insider: Google is making it harder for travelers to find the best prices, the Wall Street Journal charges

Business Insider: Google is making it harder for travelers to find the best prices, the Wall Street Journal charges. “Google is using its dominance of the search market to limit competition in the online travel business — for its benefit and that of some major hotel chains it’s teamed up with, the Wall Street Journal charges in a new editorial. The online search giant, together with the hotel chains, is limiting the ability of online travel agencies (OTAs) to use keywords to advertise hotel rooms, according to the editorial. Meanwhile, Google’s own travel service, which features listings from OTAs, takes a big cut out of the commissions they earn, the Journal reported.”
