After all these recent "Display Advertising" blog posts that Google has made...





I figured it was only a matter of time before Google started putting big banner ads on more and more of their webpages... and today I saw them on my Google Image searches for the first time:

I did a quick search and found this official blog post about it:

<< Today we're expanding the image ad formats available on Google Images by testing rich media leaderboard units that appear above Google Images search results and invite you to try new products and services. With the introduction of this display ad format on Google Images, you now have a great opportunity to reach users with engaging ads, whether your goal is to build brand awareness, or to drive clicks and conversions. >>

Hopefully they don't make their way to my home page.....

That 3rd image in the results for 'vacation' is...hmmm...interesting!

And, I see the same banner ad as shown. It's not that bad seeing it show up – now that they have infinite scroll in images. This way, you don't have to keep seeing a new ad like you would have before when going to the next page of results.
