Well. Links are no longer the Big Thing in Google ranking - allegedly; Reddit flexes its new-found muscles over users ad choices; Google Optimize shutters as Google trashes yet another service; on the flip side Google is mentioned as "adjusting" bid prices for Google Ads; and Apple turns down little-known Bing in favour of $19 billion from Google as a defensive measure against Chrome.

YouTube & Google Lose Major Advertisers

2017-11-30T06:24:51+11:00Categories: SEO News|Tags: , , , , |

Despite having one of the best (allegedly) AI engines, Google and YouTube just haven't been able to stop insidious comments on YouTube kids videos. This has cost them global advertisers and a big chunk of revenue, and has spurred them into action. It's amazing how companies will generally only act if it affects their hip pocket.

Net Neutrality Threatens The Internet

2017-11-28T18:55:48+11:00Categories: SEO News|Tags: , , , |

Welp, it looks like Net Neutrality has gone out of the window for US ISPs. This is to the detriment of the internet, and will result in poorer service, increased prices, more advertising and increased costs for advertisers. It's not beyond the realms of possibilities that Bing (that small, unused search engine) could even pay to be in the fast lane.

Alphabet Separates Google Shopping in EU

2023-12-05T19:37:39+11:00Categories: SEO News|Tags: , , , |

I love the way big corporates, like Google / Alphabet, get to play by their own rules. And occasionally, it's fun to watch a big corporate and a big institution, like the EU, fight it out. Google is changing its shopping service in the EU to prevent ongoing EU fines after their recent judgement. In the less-than surprising turn of events, you can read about in this story, it's unlikely that Google's revenue stream will be affected. #EU #EUFine #GoogleShopping #SERP

Google Ending First Click Free

I do feel sorry for new publishers though. Those glass-walled offices in big city-centres can;t be cheap.
