How Covid-19 Supercharged The Advertising Tripoly: FB, Google & Amazon see the article here

As we’ve said on several occasions, the pandemic launched digital acumen among consumers by 5 years or more, but it also might have launched it forward for advertisers. Realizing how much quarantine time would be spent online, for the first time ever the combination of the big 3 tech ad giants, Google, Facebook, and Amazon accounted for OVER HALF of all advertising dollars spent in 2020. Digital advertising isn’t the future; it’s the very clear present.

Smart matching match types were recently discovered in some ad accounts as a new way of targeting keywords.

As Google continues to move to automation, this is just the latest evidence that they are continuing down that path.
