I just noticed for the the first time that AdWords ads are showing in certain Google Image search results. Has this been the case for a long time or is this new? I use Google Image search *fairly* regularly and have never seen it before myself.

I've never seen them (and still don't). Where are they appearing?

If you do a search for 'Lake Tahoe' or 'Audi A4', for example, the ads show up immediately above the first row of images.

I'm still seeing it, and it's not a spyware app or anything like that.

I saw a couple of examples six or eight months ago and mentioned it then, but have since not seen any of them.

I have been seeing this for some time now.

They have done 2 different layouts as far as I have seen.

Initially, I noticed 6 ads at the foot of the page. Recently they have changed it to 2 on top and 4 on bottom.

I haven't seen it but I don't think that it is a very good idea. Will ads on Google Images convert into sales?

Anyone know what % of Google searches are image searches?

If I had to guess, less than 5%.

shorebreak, what you are seeing is a limited test. A small percentage of users on Google.com will see AdWords text ads (identified as sponsored links) above or below the image results on a Google Image Search. At this time this is all the information that I have. :)
