Beta Ad with Search Box within it
Search box beta ad

In my industry I'm seeing a new beta ad, search box embedded within the ad. Seems like it would increase clicks. Noticed it in May of this year.

Does anyone know how long beta ads take before they make it available to everyone or remove it? I don't have a rep, so I can't try it. The ad stands out and seems like it gets many clicks. Unfair to other advertisers who are unable to use that extension.

Can you post a screen shot of what you are seeing?

I don 't know how to post a screen shot. You can see the ads with the search box function when searching for parking signs.

Looks like a communication extension that moves your site's search feature up into the AdWords ad... makes me wonder if it's a beta for folks who use G as their site search vendor (makes sense they'd start there).

If in early beta, it's likely those playing are gagged by NDA, suggest you talk to your G rep for more info. I haven't read anything about this, so i'm guessing it in early, gagged beta phase now.

Can def see it on your suggested search.

Here is a link to a screenshot of the Search box in an Ad

Look's like the advertiser messed up their dynamic keyword insertion in the headline.

According to my AdWords Rep. it is a Beta Test
