a new twist. This time, Google is apparently to put its text ads
(just like you see in search results) into a Chicago newspaper. Hmm, where? The

confirmed with me that they are evaluating a potential print ads test in Chicago
newspapers. That’s all they’ll say, at the moment. They added that the existing
print ad program they’ve been testing in magazines has had favorable reaction
from advertisers and publishers.
