Google Testing AdWords At Bottom Again

Oct 15, 2010 • 8:20 am | comments (2) by | Filed Under Google Ads (AdWords)

Google is apparently testing placing AdWords ads at the bottom of the search results, again. A WebmasterWorld thread has two people reporting seeing this recently.

One said:

I never noticed this before maybe it's not new. I see 3 Adwords Ads on top of the serps as usual and 3 at the bottom directly below the 10th result. There are no Ads at all to the right side of any keywords I check.

Scott added:

Saw this once today. I really wish they'd stop testing.

Whatever layout changes they're making impressions for the same spot are down 25% again today. This may explain that.

Google has tested this in the past. Back in 2005 and 2008. Here is a screen shot from 2005:
