Google is going to start display ads

Marissa Mayer talking about Google's new ad strategy:

"Matching graphical-display ads with image searches ``represents a large opportunity, and there's lot of potential for advertising revenue there,' Marissa Mayer, a Google vice president, told Bloomberg Radio today. At the same time, the company must ensure such ads don't drive users away, she said..."

It doesn't drive users away, it just leads more people towards Ad-block systems (e.g. Adblock Plus).

It's a bad deal for Google and a bad deal for every other ad sponsored portal. One of Google's biggest achievement was a conservative ad placement strategy. In my opinion it was one of the keystones of Google's success.
