    Google Color Change For Sponsored Links - Lilac?
    Does anybody else see this? Just checking and the top sponsored links are showing in some kind of lilac or purple.

    I'm getting that with all my searches now, just on the sponsored links at the very top:

    Nope, blue for me.

    After you edited and added the link, edited to say:

    Nope, still blue in IE 7

    And what a shame that paid shoebuy.com links are showing ... how dumb is that?
    Continued Success,

    I've reconsidered. The color change seems to me, based on my stats, to draw people's eyes a tad more to the top ppc results. So I'm in favor of G rotating the color every once in a while to freshen things. Whatever the color, I'm quite sure the G engineers are tracking things with a fine tooth comb to make ads there more noticeable. Being in favor of change, and knowing purplebear's an uber cool ABW member, I'm liking it as their first choice in the color rotation experiment.
