Picture: Google "Related Commercial Searches"

A few days ago, we reported on rumors of Google Showing Commercially Related Keywords In AdWords Positions. Well, it turns out to be true. A long time friend from the industry, Darrin Ward sent me a screen shot of this image the other day. Here it is:

Google Related Commercial Ads?

As you can see, in the position of where Google's search ads go, the AdWords ads, are "related commercial searches." I guess the query searched for here is not commercial oriented enough for Google to validate showing search ads for, so they are pushing people to be more commercially oriented when searching.

What do you think of this?

It is not too surprising to see this given all of the other pervasive ways we are 'funneled' to undertake the right type of search query.

Well i believe that's good news. This would probably reduce the amount of misclicks on ads when it gets displayed on a non-commercial keyword. Since it wouldn't be displayed at all :P
