Here's the rundown:
Fed official calls for the inclusion of fintechs in bank merger competitive analysis
A Fed official suggested updates to big bank merger rules to account for increasing competition from fintechs.

Fed Governor Michelle Bowman called some of the rules regarding big bank mergers "outdated" and said that the Federal Reserve Board should consider updating them to reflect the impact fintechs now have on the banking industry. The merger rules were last updated in 1995.

Bank mergers have been a popular conversation topic this year. Nearly all bank merger deals since 2003 have been approved, which led the Biden administration to slow down the reviews and look at overhauling the approval process.

πŸ” Semantic search

Good morning, Search Marketer, if I had a nickel for every poor explanation of semantic search I've read – I'd have a lot of nickels.

Thankfully, Search Engine Land contributor Olaf Kopp has put together a helpful, deep dive on semantic search and what it means for semantic SEO. In his comprehensive article, he traces back the origins of what true semantic search is – and how Google is evolving into a semantic search engine.

It's probably a safe bet that semantic search will be discussed at SMX Next, happening Nov. 15-16 this year (oh and in case you missed it, registration is now open – get your free ticket here).
