Good Morning & Happy Quiet Day!

Do you remember what is quiet? Unless you’re still single, quiet is the most desirable commodity needed in most families. Don’t get me wrong, we all love our kids (I have 4…) but some peace and quiet can be good as well.

A few things happening over the weekend:

1) Seems like Oracle wins in TikTok takeover race, but there are still many open questions remaining such as ByteDance said it would not include TikTok’s algorithm as part of the sale.

2) It seems like negative impact of pandemic on small business is weakening.

3) Google My Business gains more new attributes for listings.

4) Google experiencing indexing issue with new articles.

Let’s make this week fantastic!

Amazon is projected to keep growing their market share and sellers are flocking to the platform every day by the thousands.
