This week, Google enforces its site reputation policy with a heavy hand, Meta rolls out AI features for advertisers, and Google Shopping Ads get a conversion boost. The DOJ probes Google for ad price manipulation, while navigating personalisation and privacy remains a tightrope walk for marketers. Stay informed and ahead with JB’s insights.

Google’s Site Reputation Crackdown: Prepare for Delisting

Google has started enforcing its site reputation abuse policy, which means portions of sites deemed untrustworthy are being delisted. This move targets sites with misleading content, spammy links, and other harmful practices.
It’s no surprise that Google is tightening the reins. For site owners, this means it’s time to clean up your act. Ensure your content is genuine, useful, and well-linked. No one likes a good website going down in flames due to a few bad apples.
This crackdown is a reminder of the importance of maintaining a high-quality, reputable site. If your site faces delisting, it might be time for a thorough audit. Contact us to discuss our SEO Audit & Cleanup Services.

Meta’s AI Ad Features: A Game Changer for Advertisers?

Meta has introduced generative AI features aimed at revolutionising how advertisers create and optimise campaigns. These tools promise more personalised and effective ad experiences.
AI in advertising isn’t just a buzzword; it’s a reality. Meta’s new features could streamline ad creation, making it easier to tailor campaigns to specific audiences. However, as with all shiny new tools, the real test will be in the results.
Advertisers should experiment with these AI tools to see how they can enhance campaign performance. As always, keep a close eye on metrics to ensure you’re getting the bang for your buck. If you’re curious about leveraging AI in your campaigns, let’s talk about our Digital Advertising Services.

Google Shopping Ads: Now With Conversion Annotations

Google Shopping Ads now feature conversion annotations, which highlight products more likely to convert based on past performance. This update aims to boost ad efficiency and drive more sales.
For e-commerce businesses, this is a potential game-changer. Conversion annotations could help highlight best-performing products, making ad spend more efficient. However, relying solely on these annotations without a solid strategy might not yield the best results.
It’s essential to integrate these insights into your broader marketing strategy. Need help optimising your shopping ads? Our E-commerce Marketing Services can guide you.

DOJ vs. Google: Ad Price Manipulation Allegations
