Not sure if any of our clients use Insta to promote their products, but it's good to note that they've recently updated their algorithm and engagements are dropping. Got a bunch of designers in a Facebook group I'm in saying they've noticed a significant engagement drop in the past week.

is this paid or organic (or both?)
Justin Kalaskey   8:46 AM in #marketing-world

It seems like this article says that the favicon is going to be used for organic results rather than paid results

“a new black label for ads and favicons for organic search results”
Justin Kalaskey   2:22 PM in #marketing-world
Then I stand corrected! Either way, make sure your clients have a favicon :wink: never know what else Google will do with them in the future
