You may be aware that, on 3 December 2020, Google released an update to its core algorithm. It is thought that this was a big, global broad core update, more extensive even than the previous core update rolled out earlier this year in May.
For some time now Google Chrome and other browsers like Safari have been rolling out updates which have been increasing the restrictions placed on third party cookies, and even first party cookies to a degree. Safari was one the first to bring in these changes (on a large scale), but they also have less to lose from these kinds of restrictions. And Microsoft Edge, we don’t really care about (we’ll let you look this up).
Soon things are about to change, drastically! Google Chrome is going to start to ‘phase out’ third party cookies, natively. The intention is to do this within two years; however, changes could come sooner. But what effect will this have on marketers and where will this leave adtech companies which are solely reliant on these cookies to function?
When people are buying products and services paid search, also known as Pay Per Click or PPC, can be a great tactic to use to get people looking for what you are doing to buy from you. Or if it is an offline purchase, submit a lead form to start the purchase conversation. You pay your money for the click, get people to the site and if the conversion metrics multiplied by the cost per click (CPC) work you get leads at a profitable level.
