Google Publication Ads

Google releases Google Publication Ads, a service similar to AdWords except it’s for print, and not the web (it’s invite-only at the moment). Google says the service “enables you to place ads in print publications, allowing your advertising to reach an audience that’s targeted to the demographics and topics you choose.” Graphic ads are allowed as well.

If you spot these ads in the wild, I’m happy for a note. According to MediaPost Publications, for now ads are only available in two Chicago newspapers.

This isn’t the first time Google is seen playing around with print ads. Late August this year, Google bought ad pages in PC Magazine and Maximum PC, and then resold space within those pages.

So what’s next, AdWalls?
