Google showing ads on home page

 9:53 pm on Jan 3, 2006 (gmt 0)

Eweek is reporting [eweek.com] that Google is showing ads on its various root domains in selected tld countries.

Advertisements now appear on the home page of a Google Inc. Internet search engine, thus ending the company's nearly decade-long tradition of an ad-free front page.

They are not flashy, "graphical doodads and popping up all over," as Google promised in late December.

Rather, Google's Web site in Belarusian [google.by], has the more sedate approach of three sponsored links taking up an inch-wide column of the right-hand side of the Web browser.

This is a sign of the new era for Google, one in which a portion of its once-pristine front page will be sold to advertisers a pixel at a time, as Internet search competitors Yahoo Inc. and Microsoft Corp.'s MSN now do.

This is VERY interesting - and something which I think a lot of people knew was something to come!

How long before they run on .com?

Ah, ok, that explains it.
