Don’t Get Panic If You See Ads In Google News Search Results

Google is always doing some experiment to make thing better. Here is something that they did with Google News Search. If you're in the US, you may notice something a bit different when you search Google News.

Last November, Google announced plans to begin experimenting with ads on a number of Google properties, including news query refinements within Google search. Google is continuing a similar experience for users by introducing ads on Google News search-results pages in the US.

What this means is that when you enter a query like iPhone or Kindle into the Google News search box, you'll see text ads alongside your News search results--similar to what you see on regular Google searches or Google Book Search.

In recent months Google has been experimenting with a variety of different formats, like overlay ads on embedded videos from partners like the AP.
