Google Says Links With UTM Parameters Are Not By Default Paid Links

As expected, the Google Search Console URL Parameter Tool is no longer available. If you try to access it for a specific property, you get a message that reads “this report is no longer available here.” It links you to the announcement that the tool was being decommissioned today.

Here is a link to the tool, after you select a property, the interface will show you this error:

I assume that link will eventually just stop working.

Google wrote “we’re deprecating the URL Parameters tool in Search Console in 1 month.” Google added that there is “no action required from the current users of the tool.” All the URL parameter tool rules no longer are used by Google has of today, April 26, 2022.

Aurora Morales Recording Again in A Real Google Studio

Aurora Morales of Google has done a nice number of videos for Google, specifically on the publisher monetization front. She did a nice number of those while at home since COVID. She now said she is back for the first time in a real Google studio recording.

She wrote on Twitter “Filming at an actual studio again (and not remotely from my apartment) has felt truly amazing. More policy video content coming.”

This is good to see – I was in one of these studios and they are the real deal.
