Google Delays Deprecation of Third Party Cookies Once Again

Google is once again faced with delays in the deprecation of third-party cookies due to concerns raised by the U.K.’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). The CMA has highlighted various issues regarding how the move will impact the broader digital marketing industry, and how it could potentially give Google an unfair advantage over its competitors. This has prompted Google to revise its approach to the phase-out of third-party cookies in order to address the concerns raised by the regulatory authority.

Despite Google’s efforts to comply with the CMA’s requirements, the company has not yet been able to adequately address all of the highlighted concerns. As a result, Google has announced that the removal of third-party cookies will not take place by the end of the year as initially planned. The company has stated that it needs more time to reconcile feedback from the industry, regulators, and developers, as well as to allow the CMA to review all evidence, including results from industry tests.

This delay marks the third time that Google has postponed the removal of cookie tracking, causing frustration among those in the advertising industry. Google has been working on developing its “Privacy Sandbox” proposals as an alternative to cookie tracking, with the aim of minimizing the impact of data loss in campaigns. However, regardless of the replacement provided by Google, the industry is expected to experience a significant shift, with a reduction in data insights as a result of the change.

Expectations for the future

Although Google is confident that its anonymized data alternatives will deliver similar results, the CMA has raised specific concerns to avoid disruption and prevent negative impacts on advertisers. While marketers now have more time to prepare for the phase-out of third-party cookies, reports suggest that many are simply waiting for the change to take effect before adjusting their strategies accordingly. It is important for marketers to stay informed and understand the implications of Google’s alternative options to navigate the changing landscape of digital marketing successfully.
