Google to Run Image Advertisements in Image Search

May 21, 2008 • 9:36 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under Google Ads (AdWords)

In September 2005, we reported that members were seeing image ads with Google Image Results. It seems that this is on the horizon and will be tested (and possibly rolled out) anytime now. As Bloomberg reports, "Display ads may work better with image searches because they seem more natural to people looking for pictures" (according to Marissa Mayer).

There's no date on when this will be rolled out, but since Google can monetize image search, it may happen pretty soon, I'd imagine.

Would you be receptive to image ads in image search results?
