In advance of the upcoming shopping season, this seems to be the week of bizarre stats, from GenZ & TikTok to more than half of people preferring online and bricks shopping. There are also some important updates for PMax campaigns, Chrome and user privacy, some unhelpful commentary from Google on unhelpful content. Dive in to get fully up to speed with these!
This week: Google doesn’t shut something down for once; X, TikTok and Meta do surprising things; Google Business gets shown a bit of love; Generative Search gives some crumbs of exposure for its content-pilfering; and YouTube releases some interesting research which says (shock) people love video. Charming, exciting and annoying all in one handy readable post. Read on and enjoy.
This week all manner of excitement unleashed itself on Twitter / X / X-TAFKAT as it rebranded itself in a very janky manner - this will be a case study in future years; Google, FB and others had recession-defying ad revenue increases; TikTok is muscling in on text, Google Ads is pushing us inexorably towards Performance Max campaigns, and I go on a bit of a rant about the idiocy of email open rates. Fun!

I want to help people deal with the upcoming Google Chrome update. If your website is served on HTTP, you need to ensure it is served via HTTPS by October 17th 2017. Google Chrome v62 will mark URLs served via HTTP as "Not Secure" when a user enters data into a form. In Incognito mode, the URL will be marked as Not Secure when the page is loaded. This will affect your website's conversions, revenue and lower the user's trust in your brand / site / service / product. #SEO #HTTPS #Redirects #SiteMigrations #WebsiteSecurity #DataPrivacy
