Google mixing images in with text ads?

    I saw this on my site last night, and now again today. I am not putting the image in there... it's part of the ad, with a normal Adsense destination URL.
    SEMrush
    WTF?

    Anyone else seeing this? Is this new?

    Cool... I'm seeing it on some of my other sites as well... was there an announcement about them that I missed or something?

    Yes, I think they announced it on their Blog that they are busy testing adding images to the ad units. (Though it could have been the Jensense blog I read it on).

    I saw these ads at several my sites as well.
    I think it started at least a week or week and half ago.
    It still very rare to get an ad with image, but it happens...

    Well, I mostly see it on my photography site, so it makes sense they have more images for it. ;)

    I've never seen this before, but on a page I was looking at, a 728x90 banner ad had an image within it on the left side- before the contextual ads.
    All within the ad border, mind you.

    More sponsored links....



    It took me to a Google page with more links in that category.
    Looks remarkably like an Adlinks page.

    Have I been living in a cave or what?
    I never knew that "option" was available to us.

    That's an interesting feature. As you may have been hearing/reading Google has been playing around with various ad layouts that are not as of yet available to choose, just at random. I like the one you have posted as it is kinda like a links unit, and a banner in one, giving the user options. It doesn't look too bad either. I would really like to see more of this random change-up as it keeps it looking fresh.

    Yeah, and I had to refresh the page to get it to replicate for me again.
    Tried to do a PrintScrn, but for some reason my Gmail won't take the paste.
    I suppose that's a seperate support issue...LOL

    All I'm getting below my initial post is an adlinks bar, even upon refreshes.
    Anyone else seeing the new feature?

    Hey,

    I've attached a screenshot.

    This is one of the older ones. I'll try and get a newer one.

    Regards,
    Sohan.
