Google has agreed to change the way it displays its competitors' links in search results after reaching a settlement with the European Union's antitrust watchdog.
The agreement brings an end to a three-year-old case of Google allegedly abusing its dominant position in internet searches.
Under the proposal, Google will display results from three competitors in a similar way to its own whenever it promotes its specialised search services such as Google shopping, restaurant or hotel searches.
It will also label their results more clearly, to allow users to distinguish between natural search results and those promoted by Google.
The new rules will only apply to searches made in Europe.
At the moment, the search engine doesn't alert users to its "favourable treatment" of in-house services.
The EU said this was a problem, as it makes it harder for people to access competing sites.
Reaching a settlement will spare the company a longer antitrust procedure that could have resulted in fines of up to 10% of the company's annual revenue, or about £3.07 billion.

- The number of orders from a foreign intelligence service related to secret national security
- If those orders covered just email addresses or further information
Yahoo has apologised to rival internet giant Google after posting a screen capture on its Twitter account over an earlier disruption to its services.
The company, whose own Web-based email service experienced a massive outage in December, later put it down to "bad judgement".
Google has apologised after the Internet giant's widely used free email and an array of other services were disrupted by apparent software woes.
"Earlier today, most Google users who use logged-in services like Gmail, Google+, Calendar and Documents found they were unable to access those services for approximately 25 minutes," Google engineering vice president Ben Treynor said in a blog post.
"Whether the effect was brief or lasted the better part of an hour, please accept our apologies - we strive to make all of Google's services available and fast for you, all the time, and we missed the mark today," Treynor said.
"The issue has been resolved, and we're now focused on correcting the bug that caused the outage, as well as putting more checks and monitors in place to ensure that this kind of problem doesn't happen again".
The Google 'Smart' contact lens that monitors glucose levels in tears "looks and feels" like ordinary soft contact lenses, said lead researcher Brian Otis.
"This prototype looks and feels like a regular soft contact lens but inside it we have a tiny chip and a miniaturised glucose sensor that allows us to continually monitor tear glucose levels," he said.
"We've had to work really hard to develop tiny low-power electronics that operate on very low levels of energy and really small glucose sensors."
Google has unveiled a protype contact lens that monitors glucose levels in tears.
The technology giant hopes that the lens could one day replace traditional finger jab tests that some people with diabetes have to endure up to 10 times a day to test their blood sugar.
The lenses, which use a minuscule glucose sensor and a wireless transmitter, will take at least five years to reach consumers, Google says.
