Just noticed this morning that PPC AdWords are listed where the Premium Sponsorship listings are normally displayed.

Error or sellout?

Either way, business will be good this weekend :)

Confirmed : At Google UK the AW Select program of my partner is shown instead of the Premium ad!!

Any thoughts?

Same on google.com!!

In Italy it's the same. Very good... and very cheap:-) you don't have to pay at least 3.000 Us$ on a CPM basis:-)

It only shows if you have 1 premium sponsor.

Not seeing it on my searches but I have seen this some months ago, but it was apparantly a glitch.

Yes.. it looks to be the case.

I don't have a big issue with it though, assuming that the Premium listing is clearly distinguished as NOT being a search return. The problem I have is that the Premium coloration for me on some searches looks a bit suspect... is it getting closer and closer to white.. or is it my eyes?

Maybe the latter, but I will be looking VERY closely at the apparent merge of the adverts into the true returns over the coming weeks/months. I can't believe that Google would be so stupid, but you never know in this game.

>... is it getting closer and closer to white

I use an LCD/TFT monitor and yes, pink colored ads and green colored ads look like search results. Maybe because of my monitor settings (mmm.. too bright?)
