Google’s recent rolling out of Generative AI / Bard and the integration of AI into its search algorithm has raised significant concerns, the loss of privacy being chief among them!

the power of Google-Extended

Google has unveiled plans to incorporate AI into its search algorithm, which has sparked concerns about data privacy.

As Google’s AI models evolve, the company aims to use data from websites to train these models. This raises concerns about the privacy of your data and how it may be utilized without your consent.

In response to these concerns, Google has introduced a powerful tool called Google-Extended.

This tool empowers website publishers to have more control over their data while still remaining accessible through Google Search. With Google-Extended, you can protect your data from being used to train Google’s AI models while preserving your online visibility.

so… what is it Google Extended

Google-Extended operates through the robots.txt file, which informs web crawlers about site access permissions.

Simply put: a bit of new code is all it’ll take!

Using this new tool, you can manage whether your website contributes to Google’s AI improvement, including Bard and Vertex AI generative APIs. This control allows you to safeguard your data and determine who can access your site’s content, ensuring your privacy is maintained.

Google and Ingenuity Media both agree!

Google acknowledges the importance of making sure website owners maintain control over their data. As AI applications continue to expand, Google is actively exploring ways to empower web agencies with enhanced privacy capabilities, for which the Ingenuity Media Team is eternally grateful!!
