As you may know, Google was in a hearing this week in congress around antitrust issues, so was Apple, Facebook and Amazon.

Well, Congressman David N. Cicilline questioned Google on the Google's mission on getting people to go off of the search results page and on to a different site as quickly as possible. He then referenced a study Rand Fishkin published on SparkToro named As the Antitrust Case Against Google Kicks Off, Here’s Where the DOJ Should Start.

Here is a video of one of the snippets where Rand's study was mentioned, it was mentioned actually numerous times in the hearing:
