Google Banner AdWords
AdWordsAdvisor talks about the recent annoucement that Google is now offering banner and image ads as part of the AdWords program. The ads will not appear on Google though (at least not yet).
I haven't been around here much today, so thought I'd jump in now, and offer quick responses to a few posts quoted below.
"...It will only be evil if Google offers them as pop unders, or allows them to blink, play music or if the web page asks me to download Flash V7. to see a stupid 3rd party advertisement... "
You just made my hair stand on end! I'm pretty sure that we don't need to worry about those things! (Although I do really love a good 30 second long flash intro with fake harpsicords playing in the background.)
"Didn't someone earlier in this thread mention that graphics can be as large as 50kb?...Most people are still on dialup. When I use dialup, nothing is more irritating than a page that takes more than 10 seconds to load...A 50kb graphic may look nice if it's designed right, but if it slows down the page hosting the ad sufficiently enough, what's the point? No one can click on something that they never see... "
Such a great point. I will try to get some further details on this subject and post again. I'd be hugely surprised, though, if this had not been thought of and addressed. More later.
"I just added an image ad and it caused an error within the ad group. So now I can't access that particular group. I'm getting, " We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are unable to process your request at this time...." I guess they have a few bugs to fix still. "
Yes, we have had a few issues of this nature, and the posts here on WebmasterWorld served as an excellent early warning system. So thanks! Engineers are working on this, and it should be A-OK soon if it isn't already.
