Google Image Search To Include Shopping Ads

Google has announced that it will soon include ads in your image search results. Now, when you browse images, Google Image search results will include ads for products related the items you were just searching for. The ads will be at the top of the page above images sourced from the internet and link directly to retailers.

Whether they’re looking for a new sofa or the perfect pair of earrings, people who search and shop on their smartphones at least once a week say that product images are the shopping feature they turn to most.3 And it turns out, the top questions Google Images users ask us are 'What's the price of this?’ and ‘Where can I buy it?’ That’s why we are introducing Shopping ads on image search. Now your ads for related products will appear as shoppers browse Google Images, so they can easily click through to buy from you.
