Over the past few decades, companies, marketing departments, and c-suites have used the term “community” to refer to a smorgasbord of ideas, from wide-ranging organizational investments — such as neighborhood events or charity partnerships — to online forums and even simple email lists.

On Friday, August 7, Search Engine Land’s Editor-in-Chief, Ginny Marvin, will talk with advertising and data intelligence experts about what advertisers affected by CCPA need to do to keep their Facebook campaigns compliant, how to adjust Facebook campaigns as a result of this change, and the impact marketers are already seeing due to Limited Data Use.

When Limited Data Use (LDU) is enabled, Facebook restricts the way data from users detected to be from California can be stored and processed. The feature is already having a dramatic impact on advertisers […]
Let’s say you’re buying a new phone. You probably also have to buy a screen protector and case. But, never fear — The phone store has an array of both from different companies. They are bundled with the phone for a lower price. A phone store that bundles their products with complementary ones is an example of cooperative marketing.

This is the challenge of marketing: campaigns are everywhere. And, if campaigns are everywhere, they can be easier to tune out and ignore. In fact, social click-through rates on ads went from 2.6% in late 2018 to 2% in late 2019, a sure sign that social media users have advertising fatigue.

At SMX West earlier this year I asked Jennifer Slegg to talk to me about a topic she is very passionate about, Google’s search quality raters guidelines.
