AdCenter Ads Within Bing Search Results

The RKG blog noticed Bing testing adCenter ads within the Bing search results.

I was a bit shocked by this, but apparently it is a legit test.

Should Bing put ads inline with organic ads?

IMO, if you want to put ads inline with the organic results, the ads should be clearly identifiable as such by their appearance: either because they are display ads, or they have a format and styling that does not approximate the organic results appearance.

I agree with bw100, otherwise, I don't see a problem with it from a search pov.

From an advertisers pov, it's great.

I have no problem at all with ads within the content of a search result page, as long as they are clearly marked. The "Clearly Marked" issue spans ALL search engines, not just Bing.

Absolutely! If you could kill all the other ads on the page, you'd have The SERP version of a print island position ad.
