Google asking searchers to leave a review

Google always asks searchers to leave a review while making a purchase to help other buyers. But from now onward, Google might make few changes to the whole process. First Google used to ask “Have you made an online purchase from www.xyz.com before? But now Google is asking “help others shop by writing a review.” A small change but analysts say that it might encourage people to review more.

Google Analytics introduces new features  

Google Analytics is receiving a significant update based on the foundation of App+Web property introduced by them in beta last year. The 4 key features to be introduced in the “new” Google Analytics are: 

  • Smarter insights that use machine learning to identify trends. 
  • Deeper integration with Google Ads. 
  • Customer-centric data measurement.
  • More granular data controls 

“These features are designed specifically to help marketers improve their marketing decisions and get better ROI”. says Google. One thing is for sure, in order to stay up-to-date, the company will no longer be investing in its old version of GA. 

This means marketers have to create a new ‘Google Analytics 4’ property alongside their existing properties in their specific GA accounts.
