Google Ads Now In Images, YouTube, Finance & News

In the Official Google Blog, Nick Fox points out that Google is rolling out "ads in new places." These locations include:

  • Image ads in Google Image Search (SERoundtable coverage and a foreshadowing post)
  • Sponsored videos on YouTube (SERoundtable coverage)
  • Text ads on Google Finance, which was rolled out on Monday. Search Engine Watch Forums member abbottsys calls this a "financially smart" move, saying:
    If you do a stock quote on a company the AdWords ads that display are not finance, they are for the industry sector of the company. In other words, AdWords knows what industry you're in based just on your trading symbol, and displays appropriate ads.
  • Google will also be rolling out ads on news refinements in the actual search engine, so that if you click on a news link, there will be text ads nearby.
