Google has cut more than 2,000 temporary and contract workers as its advertising business has been hit by the outbreak.
Google has cut more than 2,000 temporary and contract workers as its advertising business has been hit hard by the new crown outbreak, foreign media reported.
"We are slowing down the pace of hiring and investment and not hiring as many new hires as planned at the beginning of the year," Google said in an email to contracting agencies last week. "
The move affects more than 2,000 people around the world, according to three people familiar with the matter, who have signed contracts or temporary work agreements with the contractors.
Google employs more than 130,000 contractors and temporary workers, compared with 123,000 full-time employees. Google's full-time employees have high salaries and generous benefits, but temporary workers and contractors tend to be paid less and less, even if they work with full-time employees without the same protection.
This gap became more pronounced during the New Crown outbreak. Google announced in April that its paid leave policy for its employees had been extended from eight to 14 weeks. Sundar Pichai, chief executive of Alphabet, Google's parent company, said on Tuesday that they could get $1,000 in compensation for equipment and desk tables and chairs.
Baidu rejected 592 million non-compliant ads in March and April.
On May 27, Baidu released the monthly report on comprehensive information security management in March and April, showing that in March and April, Baidu Content Security Center through all-round means to combat the clean-up of Baidu's entire product line of harmful information. Among them, Baidu used artificial intelligence technology to mine and combat harmful information a total of more than 8.38 billion, through manual inspection to combat harmful information more than 10.123 million.
In terms of online marketing, Baidu cracked down on 51 million medical variants in March and April (font substitutions/order changes for related search terms, etc.) in order to evade regulation, and 592 million non-compliant ads. Since 2020, Baidu has cracked down on 67 million medical variants and 781 million ads for refusing to comply.
At the same time, Baidu has launched a campaign to combat cross-border online gambling. First of all, Baidu search iterating the original wind control model and added a number of strategies to the relevant harmful information vertical crackdown.

MediaRadar: Overall cost of programmatic advertising down 9% since 2020
Overall, spending on programmatic ads fell 9 percent in April from the start of the year, according to MediaRadar, an advertising data analytics firm. Compared with March, travel brands spent 79% less on programmatic advertising in April and 40% less in the same period.
"We're not seeing a big turnaround right now." "These companies are struggling with the epidemic, they're slashing advertising budgets and it's hard to fill in the short term," said Todd Krizelman, CEO of MediaRadar. "
Before the outbreak, The tourism industry accounted for 10 percent of the total digital programming advertising spending, Krizelman added. Now there has been such a huge shift in spending that advertising technology companies such as Adara and Sojern, which are at the heart of the tourism industry, have had to lay off workers and end some of their operations in response to the crisis.
In April, the third-largest drop in programmatic advertising spending was in campaign marketing, with the industry spending on programmatic advertising falling by 8%.
The two main reasons for the reduced spending by car advertisers are the low number of trips and the cancellation of sporting events. However, MediaRadar predicts that the car brand will be the first major vertical market to increase spending as carmakers are already changing their advertising creative campaigns to emphasize safety, driving pleasure and big price incentives.
Krizelman says tourism, especially small-scale tourism companies, faces more difficult challenges.
"If the economy doesn't improve soon, many companies will face a liquidity crisis." He said.
Advertising technology companies are also facing a liquidity crisis as a cause of the outbreak. Many companies are still laying off workers, and intermediaries are trying to woo advertising media, but the media are also worried that advertisers may go bankrupt and end up empty-handed.
According to MediaRadar, there was still an increase in spending on programmatic advertising in some industries in April. Investment in the vertical sector of education and training rose 70 per cent, the technology sector by 63 per cent and the beauty industry, led by skincare advertisers, by 35 per cent. Among the brands that saw the biggest increases in programmatic advertising were Slack, Electronic Arts, GrubHub, Bank of America and Facebook.
"These brands see the outbreak as an opportunity and happen to benefit from it. They are moving forward. Krizelman said.
Since last year, users have doubled the amount of time they spend on streaming Tv. Streaming services naturally use these time to market. Krizelman said the 18 percent increase in streaming programming spending came mainly from platforms such as Hulu, Disney Plus, disney and Apple's Apple TV Plus. Netflix is still marketing, but not as aggressively as usual.
