Welcome to another week of digital marketing news Click-Through-Readers! Every single person I have spoken to this week is going crazy trying to make up for a lost day on Monday. Don’t get me wrong, I am on team three-day-weekend, but can we please always make the extra day off a Friday? I wish you all the best as we finish up the rest of the post-Labor Day weekend rush. 

This week in the news we cover new changes to Google Search Term reports, a new beta for Consent Mode on Google Ads and Analytics, new Bing betas, Performance Planner updates for Shopping ads, and updated Google international fees. 

Let’s get into the news!
