From now on, Youtubers must compete against content produced and marketed by Google itself.

Doesn't this ring a bell?

This gives advertisers more opportunities to engage with a broader audience, drive meaningful results and align with top Hollywood talent and YouTube creators.

Here we all know what does it mean: Google content above the fold and organic content moved nowhere.
