I just notice a banner ad for Google on Register.com. This is a major change for Google. I have never seen them advertise before. I wonder if they are paying for this advertisement of if the traded advertising with Register.com?

[register.com...]

Interesting that google does not mind banner ads as long as they are not their network;). It looks to me register.com is promoting the adwords use, perhaps for a fee or barter trade. Hope we don't see register's banners on google;)

The sourceid makes it look rather like an affiliate link, but I can't see any invitation to sign up.

Maybe a trial run or a few hand picked 'partners'?

Well, Register.com has a Premium Advertisement with placement on the top of this page.

[google.com...]

I highly suspect they have bartered an exchange.

Nice find.

Didn't register.com have an existing agreement with Inktomi?
