In today's episode we have Julie taking us one of those topics based on a chat webinar that happened by Google last week so this week we are gonna be talking about Google's Search On 2022 event and what it means for PPC. Ginny, who's the ad liaison of Google, tried to get me to join a round table with, I'm sure some other amazing experts, but it was the day before my PPC Live UK event, which happened on the 29th of September, which went amazingly, blow my mind, successfully well
So I'm glad that I saved up my energy to be able to receive all that esepcially all the amazing audience members, over a hundred of them, last week. So that was a really nice, but that meant unfortunately I couldn't make any of the real chats.
I did start listening to the, Google search on 22 announcements and it was interesting to hear a lot of things about retail and image search. Image searches was featured a lot, which is the one I found very interesting. But anyway, we are gonna talk about that, our thoughts about it, what we took out of it, what we are nervous about, what we are excited for.
