Google seems to now show the domain name in the AdWords ad title in the Google search results. I am not sure if this is new or not, but some Google AdWords professionals are claiming it is less than a few weeks new.

The advertisers are implying that the ads are not using the title specified in the ad creative but rather, pre-appending the domain name before the title of the ad.

Here is an example for [nike]:

Google Ad Dot Com

For [foot locker] it does not work:

Google Ad No Dot Com

Orlando Valencia said on Twitter that he is noticing it for the first time and shared some screen shots. @PPCNI added he has seen it for the past couple weeks or so.

Is this new?
