ChatGPT "launching search"
Some online ferreting hints at the possibility of a pure search site in ChatGPT clothes due soon, which would surely represent a seismic event in the Google HQ down the road.

Financial times
If OpenAI is paying you for your content and signalling to users that it came from your title, what happens for content it does not pay for? Such is the scenario with ChatGPT and the Financial Times after the title signed a licensing deal with the AI firm this week, and the questions being asked in the offices of other non-licensed media owners and their lawyers.

Handheld gatekeepers
The next Safari browser on iPhones seems set to allow users to block elements from pages and sites, including ads, cookie banners, and story elements or design choices they don't like. It is earmarked for Safari 18, scheduled for later in 2024 as part of a wider feature set to include things like AI-generated page summaries.

Lawyers, assemble!
More US newspapers are suing OpenAI and Microsoft for content theft.

This is not a new reality to members of the press, but it is increasing in regularity. Poynter concludes a four-part report into strategies available to journalists to defend against a head-in-sand approach to answering questions. All four parts are included in a PDF link.

SEO vs Java for news sites
Mr SEO Barry Adams turns Neo in the matrix this week, and gets all technical in his report on the impact he says JavaScript has on news sites' ability to rank well for search. Do you use it extensively on your site? Suffice to say Barry is not a fan - it can have enormous impacts on page load speeds if used badly.
