Google - now with more ads!
Google Image Search will soon produce picture-based ads, Google announced Monday. Just as web searches from Google.com produce text advertisements on the right-hand side of the results page, ads will also be incorporated into Image search results.
There is a "direct connection" between image search and commerce, R.J. Pittman, product management director, said at an event held at Google's Mountain View headquarters. "If we can align the nature of the images from the advertisers with the nature of the images from Image Search, it will help users find more of what they're looking for. You'll see that these renderings show a fairly seamless user experience rather than just a stack of ads across the top."
No word on when the ads will debut, but while I was checking Image Search this morning to see if the ads were showing up yet
in my opinion this will be a lil annoyin
