Interesting fact № 1. Google vs Apple.

Back in the “distant” 2020, information was published on the Internet and the world media about Apple’s plans to create its search engine, which theoretically could compete with everyone’s favorite Google Search. And in 2022, this story took its toll, Google has filed a class-action lawsuit for violating US antitrust laws, which refers to the conclusion of a non-compete agreement with Apple. Given the fact that Safari is one of the most popular browsers in the United States, to avoid competition, Google allegedly paid Apple under a non-compete agreement to suspend the development of its search engine, which could seriously compete with Google Search and deprive the company of the lion's share of profits from advertising. (from auth. The budget of companies for advertising in the USA is measured by 6 digit numbers)
While it's no secret that Google is paying billions of dollars to become the default search engine on Apple devices, the exact terms of the deal have never been fully disclosed.

Interesting fact № 2. Quality assessment for multilingual sites.

During a developer stream, Google employee John Mueller answered questions about ranking multilingual sites in the search engine. According to him, the overall assessment of the site's quality is affected by the content of all versions on the same domain.
Thus, when we fill the site with high-quality content in Ukrainian, this has a positive effect on indexing and quality assessment, while in the case when a low-quality translation of the same content is placed on the English version of the site, this negatively affects the overall assessment of the quality of the site. In other words, all content must be of high quality. As you know, Google “does not like” machine translation of the text.
