Google AdWords at Bottom of Search Results

I have not been able to get a screenshot, but at WMW Vegas I noticed that when Baked Jaked was looking at Google search results for [Gwen Stefani Tickets] that their were Google AdWords ads at the top, right, and bottom.

I asked Baked Jake, and he said he first saw the test about a few weeks ago.

more importantly, why on god's green earth are you searching for gwen stefani tickets? :)

It could be part of the random tests they have been doing.

There have also been ads in the middle - sort of like your ad placement for the book in this blog....

>ads in the middle

I think those were alternate search term suggestions?

I heard some rumours about that. Should be a test that is now going on for a few weeks at least. But I haven´t seen them by myself ...

I wonder if it depends on the number of results showing? My default setting is 100 results per page and I get nothing at the bottom. Haven't checked with 10.

Don't mock Gwen. She's an angel and a good Orange County girl.

Well, you may need to check again, Aaron. It is there now. If you want a screenshot, email me, and I'll send it to you.

I don´t see there AdWords, but now Google is advertising Google Book Search with the sentence "Try searching for gwen stefani tickets on Google Book Search" at the bottom.

I've seen it to. I went to Google, trying to find out whats up about these ads. I found treadwatch, they linked to SEW, who linked to you.

I personaly find it too much. 2 ads over, 7 at right und 2 under the rusults makes the page a bit crowded.

Here is a screenshot for the german query for presents
