Google AdWords on Google Earth
In what is cracking up to be a big week in search engine marketing news (thinking Yahoo’s new search technology, Google Health, MSN adCenter), some European bloggers are noticing a new channel for the serving of local targeted Google AdWords (yes, local is HOT); Google Earth AdWords.
Now, I’d been flying around for a couple of days and not seen a sponsored link before, so (to me at least) this looks like a new addition.
If so, it makes a lot of sense. The free release of Sketchup will renew interest in Google Earth, and this provides an excellent new source of exposure for Adwords customers who already have location based exposure on Google Maps.
