Just asking for 30 minutes of your time – over a screen share. One big thing Last week I wondered – when or IF we would mention the Corona Virus in the newsletter.

Google Adsense is the traditional advertising teams’ at Google, DoubleClick is the more brand solutions and Chrome – obviously their browser. The ads teams want/need the third party cookies but Chrome doesn’t want to lose market share by not keeping up… Continue reading
