It got so popular that businesses grew curious and started searching Google for any information they could get on creating content that would help them grow.
It’s become significantly harder for these teams to get results from the content they’re publishing – especially for those that don’t already have an engaged audience.

When COVID-19 first hit, we were all surprised and frightened.
When its economic impact began to become clear, many companies went into risk management mode and started reducing costs.
From what I’ve heard, at many companies, slashing PPC budgets were high on the list of cost reductions.
