Who Wins and Who Loses?
Google rolled in some major updates to the search results page. We thought that this article offered some good analysis of how these changes might affect future digital marketing results. It’s an important read, even if you just take a look at how the results page changes and their immediate effects.
Also, there are noteworthy incremental benefits for PPC marketers. For example, now all ads can use call-out extensions, sitelink extensions, location extensions and so on, which were previously only a benefit of top-of-page ads.
