Content Aware media news: March 16, 2023

Crawl budgets, Mr Beast's content tips, "Clippy crossed with Thanos" - all in March 16 Content Aware media news highlights.

Published: 16:30, 16 March 2023
Fight between tech giants and Ottawa over paying for news could have global impacts

The SEO budget that matters
Do you know what your crawl budget is? No, not the accumulation of bar tabs at the end of the annual Works Night Out. It's how much time and effort search engines will put into crawling your site before giving up. When you optimise for SEO, crawl budget is arguably the main thing you are actually optimising for. Learn more here in Barry Adams's Crawl 101.

Got Office? Got AI
Hot off the presses this hour are Microsoft's plans for the integration of AI into your Office 365 tools via 'Copilot' - a suite of productivity tools to boost output (or, for the pessimists, Clippy crossed with Thanos). If you use any of MS's things, have a look at what will be in your reach soon.

Mr Beast's content tips
YouTube titan Mr Beast tells how really crafting good content is the easiest route to super success in the content business. If GPP Content Titan Robert Corbidge was being interviewed, he would no doubt say it's a metaphor for the benefits of a CMS that helps you produce higher quality things - however we don't do such blatant product plugs, and he is away.

New Google Core update
Just in time to coincide with the latest ChatGPT-4 update. Just a coincidence, surely. As with all Google Core updates, keep your eyes on traffic numbers and pattern changes.

What makes subs more appealing: cost
Perhaps not a great surprise, but where subscriptions for news are less popular (i.e. US and UK), the best way to boost numbers might be as simple as cutting prices. Quite eyebrow raising is how many claim they believe no website content is worth paying for.

The ages pay differently
The biggest change indicator in habits between readers? Age. Nothing like a generational gap to see differences in habits. And the difference also extends to how and what they will pay for in their news and media consumption.

Have you forgotten UA sunsets?
No news here, just a reminder that in little more than 100 days the current Google Analytics 3 aka Universal Analytics stops taking new info prior to its sunsetting. You should be deep into prep for it already.

Newspapers on Kindle: adieu
The e-reader will no longer be home to newspapers and magazines as of this week. If you have an ongoing sub, read here for what happens next.
