Just noticed it on some searches I was doing this afternoon. Adwords ads that show up now use a small google checkout button underneath them instead of the old green shopping cart icon.

Not sure if this is a limited test - but the Google Checkout logo connected to participating merchants Adwords listings has changed from a simple shopping cart icon - to a multi-colored and very prominent button... one half reading "Google" in the branded colors on a white background, and "Checkout" with a shopping cart logo on a dark bluebackground.

IMHO, it has gone from noticable to... really, really quite noticable.

I hate it.

If I was an advertiser in the program, I'd love it... it is very prominent... gave my attention to an ad in position #6 moreso than what was in position #1... (it'll have less impact as folks get used to it, of course)

It'll also generate less qualified clicks from people interested in the icon, but, generating more traffic from lower positions - with lower CPCs - would be a positive, no?
