Adjustments for crypto promoting and Twitter will get Fleet Adverts; Friday’s each day temporary
Good morning marketers, what if we turned the traditional search model on its head?
This is what the search engine Neeva asks in its latest announcement. The company announced yesterday that it will begin “sharing at least 20% of its revenue with content creation partners when their content is used to directly answer a Neeva customer inquiry”.
When I had the debate with other SEOs about the search engine that became the tech company Google, I often said that Google exists because we voluntarily provide our content for indexing and search engine ranking. And that’s why we exist as SEOs and PPCers, because Google made it so that we have to. Is it a strange symbiosis?
Neeva’s model turns this on its head – it gives content creators a reward beyond just sending traffic – but they pay them for using that content in search results. It’s an interesting model that I hope will turn the tables on traditional search. I know it’s a long way but it’s cool that someone is working towards it.

Google Ads updates cryptocurrency ad policies

The new application form for certification will be published on July 8, 2021.
Why we care. If you’re a crypto advertiser, mark your calendar for July 8th when the new application form goes live. If you miss the deadline to get your updated stock market certification, your ads will be removed from Google.

For the first time, full-screen ads are arriving on Twitter in the form of fleet ads
Twitter is now testing fleet ads; When it is rolled out more widely, it will be the first full-screen ad format available on the social media platform. Fleet displays are vertical, support 9:16 aspect ratio images and videos (up to 30 seconds long), and have a swipe-up call-to-action. They appear between fleets when users browse fleets of other users or brands, much like Instagram Stories ads.
Although this test is currently limited to a group of US mobile users, the company is also looking at the performance of full-screen vertical ads on the platform. It’s unclear what percentage of users Fleets took over, but whether or not Fleets are staying here, it seems that at some point Twitter advertisers will have full-screen ad formats available in one form or another.
Why we care. Fleet ads can help Twitter maintain parity with Instagram and TikTok promotions. And social media platforms tend to be popular with different demographic groups, so full-screen Twitter ads (whether fleet ads or otherwise) can help advertisers reach audiences that may be harder to find on other social media networks can market.

Instagram Messenger API, The Maliciously Updated Reviews Case, and What If Your Article Goes Viral?
Facebook announces Messenger API for Instagram. The API enables developers to manage all communications in one place, according to the announcement by Facebook.
Google does not remove reviews that have been maliciously updated. A reviewer constantly updates their 1-star rating with a single letter to put their “last updated” rating at the top of the list.
