Google’s new digital marketing arm will be based in California, and it plans to invest in a number of emerging digital markets, including mobile.
The search giant announced in a blog post today that it will spend $1 billion over the next three years to help grow digital marketing.
The company said the new digital program will help it expand to other markets where it does not have a presence.
“We want to help you grow in every market you go to, so we’re building our digital program from the ground up,” the company wrote in the blog post.
Google will invest $1.5 billion over five years in its digital marketing program, Google+ said in a post today.
It will be focused on helping Google+ expand beyond the U.S., where Google+ is headquartered.
The program is meant to help Google+ grow and improve its reach across the globe.
“As we continue to build the global reach of Google+, we’ve made some significant investments to help us grow the business.
Our team will continue to grow the global digital program with our partners and we look forward to investing in this important and critical work in the coming months,” Google+ cofounder Sergey Brin said in the post.
The announcement comes as Google is being forced to contend with a growing number of privacy issues that have prompted a slew of investigations by federal agencies and state attorneys general.
In recent weeks, Google has also been the target of a series of privacy lawsuits, including one filed by the Department of Justice.
Google has been criticized for its lack of transparency on the privacy issues, which have been blamed on the company’s inability to protect user data.
Earlier this month, Google revealed that it had been the victim of an “incident” when a Google+ user reported that the search giant was selling data about their browsing habits to advertisers.
Google’s privacy practices have also been under scrutiny in the wake of a leak of the personal data of millions of users in 2016.
