A couple of announcements from Google. Google released new safety tools on Google search. First is the ability for you to control your personal information that appears on search and also the ability for you to blur certain images, say explicit images, that could pop up accidentally when you’re searching for a keyword. Now you can blur those images. So it could be helpful. When you’re browsing for something in a family setting or in situations like that, so pass this on to your family ministry team so that they can share it with the parents in your church or your ministry. The second is announcement about Google Chrome. Google Chrome app on the mobile gets an upgrade, which could be important for you from a YouTube point of view. Let me explain. Google Chrome on mobile now gives you ideas related to the keywords that you’re searching for. It also gives you trending searches, etc. So additional information about the keywords. Now this could be helpful for your YouTube keyword research process, so definitely check it out.
