If I recall these we adverts for the serious players with a minimum $ X k budget per quarter. How do you go about signing up for these ad's? Google don't seem to carry any information on it now?

They are now just the #1 and 2 AdWords positions. The old CPM scheme is no more.

Sem4u,

Thanks for this, is it just some categories that carry the top link, i.e. more popular searches?

The top links are not displayed for all searches, even if the term is quite competitive. I am sure I saw some explanation in this forum about when they appear.

I would do some searches but I am getting a 503 server error from Google.

Very briefly, ads go to the one or two spots above the search results if they have met an additional performance standard, which focuses on relevance - as measured by CTR.

That's actually a pretty nice feature because I have some nickle keywords that are always listed on top and I know people are paying more for their bids.
