Google Suggest AdWords Ads In The Wild

Jan 29, 2010 • 7:54 am | comments (3) by | Filed Under Google Ads (AdWords)

Back in December 2008, over a year ago, Google began testing AdWords in Google Suggest on the home page. Since then, I rarely saw anyone report seeing ads as you type your query in the Google search box.

A new WebmasterWorld thread has one user reporting seeing it. Maybe Google is finally moving forward with these ads? I personally cannot trigger an ad to show up for my sample queries, but maybe I am not on that data center or in the new test group?

The webmaster said:

I noticed when doing a search, that at the top of the 'search suggestions', box, a clickable adwords ad appeared. (for the company whose name I was typing). This might not be new, but I never saw this before...

I only saw this when using the home page for the first time.

Here is how it may look:

Do you see them? Have you seen them? Do you like or hate them?
