💡 In the digital age, having a website isn't just an option – it's a must. Without a website, you are missing out on a large portion of potential customers who are searching for products and services online. 🌐
It’s all money, money, money this week with X and Meta going pay-to-play in different ways; Google upsetting some people with auto GA4 setup before bringing it home with a handy ecommerce report; and finally some useful insights on Landing Page Optimisation from the Think with Google team, just in time for the Spending Season. Good stuff to read / watch / listen to. Check it out now.
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 turned into a bit of an AI-Google fest, blathering on about the challenges of controlling AI access to your hard-crafted content, vs Google wanting full access. There are also changes to FAQ & How To's on the SERP, presumably due to spam, some sage advice re content pruning, and a good guide to AI-driven PMax Google Ads campaigns. Read it and educate yourself ;-)
Another week, almost another plethora of AI-generated articles talking about AI. Luckily, I saved you from that with some news about TikTok shopping, the coming GA4 anapocalypse, and some funy-dunky ski goggles from Apple. Oh, and a couple of articles about AI, admittedly. You can't have everything. Read it now and... Like, Share and Follow :-)
I’ve got some final relevant updates before we finish 2022: Google Maps displays an "Offer Available" message under some business profile pins; Google Grinch releases a link spam update in December 2022; the ROI of personalised experiences is measured by audience performance; LinkedIn is used for content marketing. Read on to see how relevant they will be for 2023.
This week's digital update is a cornucopia of tech releases from the majors, a big Google update, and more entertaining Twitter shenanigans. All in delightfully tasteful seasonal wrapping and commentated by JB.
