I was surfing this website this week and was quite surprised to see that this bread crumb link , i clicked on was actually an advertisement by Google. I innocently though it was a that websites link to another internal page and was quite pissed off to think someone fooled me so easily and then realised it “Google new breadcrumb link ads” “Wow”. Can they do that ? they can i suppose if its on a website !!
Google’s new Breadcrumb Link Advertisements
Well the phrase “ can they do that” certainly rang true earlier in the day, when i took my daily trip back home and saw that girl next to me gimme that “can he do that” look on the bus . what i w as doing was – happily swiping my newly acquired “Guzman gomez discount card” on the bus swiping thingy (instead of my transport bus swipe card) with the girl behind me probably muttering this guy must be nuts or he’s expecting a burrito to come out now ..lol. I soon realised my mistake grinned , apologised and carried on red face out of the bus.
Well the answer to Google’s question anyway is “yes we can” ( just like bob the builder – google can show us this ads bread crumbs or arrows ) so here is a screen shot below of the bread crumb links ads ( and yes i like Indian tandoori chicken)
Looks like webpro news already knew about this coming to us . read here….
New arrow ads by google
Another “google ad” that has been appearing recently as also noticed by pat flyn on his blog here is “the new arrow ads by google”

These recent Adsense ads now display an arrow next to the ad and it almost looks like a nice little arrow button ready and primed to be clicked in the direction that it is suggesting ( out of my/your site).
