    Adwords Icon Next to Ads Now

    If you're not already aware, some merchants who advertise with Adwords, and use Google's new shopping system, will be allowed a green icon next to the URL in their Adwords ad.

    I just noticed it today while doing some research, and I have to say I'm not too thrilled. The first page of results I did, showed the usual listings, but one merchant had an icon next to their ad - it immediately drew my attention to it...kind of an unfair advantage, at least in my opinion.

    Just thought I'd share

    It all seems to be getting more complicated as the players battle for position.

    Interestingly, they seem to be using the display URL to determine if the merchant gets the icon - we are seeing it for our affiliate ads (where the merchant is using Google's new system), which means we are getting the advantage without doing anything

    What really annoys me is the fact that my domain name takes a back seat to sites that are not even relievent to that search word. You would think that searching that key word I would be first in all SO'S
