Last week, Google introduced Sponsored Videos to YouTube and also recently started testing ads on Image Search. Today, text ads come to Google Finance and soon, Google News will be getting some ad testing.
The ad testing on Google News will be a bit different. The ads will appear on the results for "search refinements." Google gave the example of conducting a search on the "regular" Google for an iPod. Clicking on the news search link from the results would be a refinement. That's where you would see the ads, should you be graced with the testing.
What do you think of the expansion of ads to other Google Properties? Let us know in the comments.
