Google includes new ad format within revamped Images search

Published on .

Mountain View, Calif.—Along with revising its Images search page, Google has introduced a new type of ad format that allows for the appearance of thumbnail images alongside text instead of merely text alone.

Called Image Search Ads, the new ad format—appearing above the organic images displayed on the Google Images query results page and clearly marked “sponsored links”—is priced similarly to regular AdWords paid-search ads, the company said in a statement.

Google already has completely redesigned the Google Images query results page, displaying up to 1,000 images on a single page with no accompanying text. Images on the results pages also now feature pop-up windows, for a larger quick view.
