If you’ve visited Google recently, you would have noticed that Google is answering the users’ queries right on the SERPs (search engine result pages). You ask a question and Google answers in the SERP. You can ask any question, and Google will provide the answer right in the search engine result page.

It is expected to see a rise in the number of searches that contain a featured snippet and Google is working with new formats for the featured snippets.

In response to this, digital marketers need to implement SEO strategies to display their content on the SERPs.

We all know that digital privacy has been a very heated discussion in recent times. Facebook’s continuing problems with the privacy of data and the effect it’s having appears to be reaching a tipping point. We expect to see Facebook and other technology giants to work under some law very soon, to improve the data privacy of the consumers. It doesn’t matter how these issues end. There is no doubt that the privacy of data will continue to be a significant focus for digital marketers. Organisations and brands that fail to take the privacy of customer’s data seriously will end up being the biggest loser.
