“The most noticeable [change] for content creators is that Google wants their raters to not only look at the reputation of the website itself, but also the content creators themselves. This is one area that many sites fall down on.”
Google is looking to reward sites that post content created by reputable content creators, to hopefully alleviate the proliferation of fake news and conspiracy theories online. Additionally, Google is preparing to fight against “clickbait” sites that may promise one type of content for users but doesn’t quite deliver the promised content in the main content.
The data collected from these quality raters will be used to improve Google’s search algorithms.

The new “Final URL suffix” field now allows advertisers to enter up to eight custom parameters, much higher than the previous limitation of three.

Google now supports all the features for advertisers that use third-party click measurement systems. This will allow marketers to easily migrate their accounts to parallel tracking ahead of the Oct. 30 deadline.
