Canada vs Meta - who wins? Not the readers...

Moose vs Meta
Canada decided to play hardball with Facebook; Facebook showed the wider world how it might play in their territories and kicked the ball into the lake where it is currently sinking. Media is caught in the middle and the people that lose out is anyone trying to keep up with events.

Best Ray specs for Google Discover

Corbidge comments on... revealing the cost of content to readers
Audiences are picky when it comes to paying for subscriptions. Is one way to show them the value of what they're getting to explain to them how much it actually costs to make? Our priceless penman investigates what the price of news can be.

SEO heats up again
Another Google core update, another roller coaster week. "Volatile", "heated", "turbulent" - just the regular week in the life of an SEO expert. As always, check your analytics for signs of being caught up in something bigger.

It's OK - the robots can't really think yet
Whatever the marvellous capabilities of AI, they still can't generate truly new ideas or viewpoints. We like that.

We'll be in New York next week at the Press Gazette Media Strategy Network USA event in Manhattan, which convenes some of America’s most influential execs in the news, media and publishing sectors. If you're on the list, we look forward to meeting you there.
