Google Stops Beta Test on Local Listing Ads

In November Google starting offering Local Listing Ads as a beta test in San Francisco and San Diego. Since Rosemont Media™ is based in San Diego we had an opportunity to test the new platform. Below you will see an image of the new placements. As you can see it is positioned above the sponsored adwords on the right hand column. In some of the tests it also appeared on top of the organic listings. You can no longer sign up as a beta tester but the ads will run until mid December. We will let you know the results of our beta test next post.
