The European Union's antitrust body says Google is offering concessions on how it displays search results in Europe to appease concerns the company might be abusing its dominant market position.


The EU Commission said Thursday the U.S. internet giant proposes a clearer labeling of results, allowing users to distinguish between natural search results and others promoted by Google.

It says Google also agreed to display some links to services offered by its competitors next to those for its own offerings such as YouTube, Google Maps or its shopping search function.

The Commission, the 27-nation bloc's executive arm, has investigated Google since 2010. It is now proposing a so-called market test of the legally binding concession offered by Google, giving competitors the chance to say whether they deem them sufficient.
