Google Announces More Ads for Your Favorite Mobile Services

Ads play a major part in our internet. It’s sad, but true.
Anyone who pays attention knows that ads are a major part of
Google’s core business and with that being said… announced
today, you will soon be seeing a lot more ads inside of Google’s
most used services on mobile, such as Google Images, Discover, and
YouTube. 

What’s funny about Google’s announcement is that it’s
written in such a way as to impress both advertisers and consumers,
but we know anyone who isn’t already a fan of ads isn’t going
to be very fond of these new ad placements. However, do note that
Google intends on delivering a very nice ad experience in these
cases. 

According to Google, consumers expect useful, swipeable, and
visual experiences from their ads.

Today, shoppable ads on Google Images allows you to highlight
multiple products within your sponsored ad. We’re also
bringing Showcase Shopping ads—a highly visual ad format that
incorporates rich lifestyle imagery—to even more surfaces like
Google Images, the feed on Discover, and soon YouTube, places where
we know people are looking for inspiration and ideas.

As an example, when using Google Images for certain things like
living room furniture, you may come across a gallery ad that can be
opened and explored. Since Google tracks these searches, you may
then find an ad for something related inside Discover. And because
Google really wants to ensure you’re being served relevant
content, you’ll also see ads when browsing videos on
YouTube. 

It appears that ads for Google Images and Discover are already
rolling out, but the new ads in YouTube are “coming
soon.” 

Just FYI!
