Clickable ads inside Google Search Box

 7:16 pm on Jan 28, 2010 (gmt 0)

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 google.com/ home page for the first time.

I've seen clickable links, but not a full blown Adwords entry. Sounds like a test to me.

If I may post a link to an example of this...


Danny has some nice screen shots, mid-way through, shows a sample of an AdWords ad in Google Suggest.

I'm going to make a very rare exception here about allowing self-linking. If I'd dug into my memory banks a bit more thoroughly I would have remembered that article from over a year back and linked to it myself - it's very helpful to this topic and a clarifying answer.

So Adwords in Search Suggestions have indeed been around since Dec 2008 - I guess I just don't visit the right search neighborhoods, because I really haven't been noticing them.
