What an exciting AI filled week it’s been. Just like many other weeks recently. Some brands are now blocking GPTBot (until offered cash, no doubt), Lyft is slapping ads into its app, Meta is being useful, Google is actually stopping UA processing (sniff), and there’s been another Google Core Update to pontificate over. Interested? Dive in for more.
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 ;-)
