Google Image Ad Extensions for Text Ads

This past Wednesday, Google announced it was beta testing allowing advertisers to add images to their text ads.

I signed up for the beta test and with any luck I’ll be accepted and can give you some feedback on how my tests work out.

It will be interesting to see where this goes as since launching Google Adwords, ads along side the search results have always been text based.

(Actually there is one exception: product listing ads, they come with images too but do not seem to be in wide use.)
