Yahoo! has been testing rich media ads in their paid search listings. Thus far, the program has been available to a small group of advertisers and seen by a small group of searchers.
The ads can include video, images, or a custom search box.
The results are promising. Advertisers testing the rich media ads saw click-through rates rise as much as 25% in the fourth quarter of 2008.
