Google: “The biggest trends impacting PPC are privacy and automation”
The bottom line on privacy is that user trust and business data involving customers must be shared with care as third-party tools gain importance with different search engines.
Greatest businesses in the world are founded on user trust
Prabhakar Raghavan, SVP of Google Ads, focused on the need for privacy, a growing concern among regulators. We’re all still catching our breath from the major changes we had to make to our websites in the past year with GDPR in Europe but this may just have been the beginning. In fact, US-based advertisers who didn’t worry about GDPR will almost certainly have to think about the impact of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) which goes into effect January 1, 2020.
Raghavan said that consumers have redefined their expectations and now expect to be able to seamlessly move across the web and across devices while having a personalized experience and at the same time have their privacy protected.
So Google is working on ways that they can continue to deliver relevant ads while using the least amount of user data says Raghavan. These are difficult problems to solve and at last year’s GML event we got a glimpse into the type of technology Google is building to solve these types of problems. For example, double-blind encryption technology lets multiple parties contribute data into a system that joins it together but where neither contributing party can get any personally identifiable data back out.
Raghavan says that the greatest businesses in the world are founded on user trust and Google obviously wants to be one of the world’s greatest companies.
One of the things you may have heard me repeat more than once is that we can make automated bidding based on machine learning (like tCPA and tROAS) better if we give it better signals about our business. It was summed up really well in a post recapping my session at SMX Advanced where I said something to the effect of: “We must focus on giving the machines the right goals in order to train them correctly.” But business data about conversions is usually about customers so sharing it with a third party like Google requires a lot of care to remove personally identifiable data.
