It has been confirmed by Google, that they are testing large banner Ads for Branded Search queries. Image with Tweet from @SynrgyHQ spotted, sharing about large banner advert in Google Search Results. Below is an image “Southwest Airlines” – search query.
A representative of Google discussed that “we are testing this large banner Ads and it’s a tiny research”. This is presently running for U.S. Market place.
How about promise which Google made in year 2005 that “No Banner ad will be added in search results”
“There will be no banner ads on the Google homepage or web search results pages. There will not be crazy, flashy, graphical doodads flying and popping up all over the Google site. Ever”.
Does Google break a promise for banner Ads and will make more money?
It seems that after 8 years Google may break its promise. From our source Search Engine Land, we also caught little more information.
This is live within 30 Advertisers, including Crate & Barrel and Virgin America and this test is showing for less than 5% search queries.
