If you have searched for a product or service in the past few days using Google, you might have noticed a difference in the way the search results display. Instead of seeing paid ads in the right-hand column of the search results page, you’re now seeing an empty space. Google has opted to remove the right-hand paid listings in favor of adding one paid listing to the top of the page and three listings at the bottom, under the organic search results.
This might not be much of a blip on your radar, since the average Google user probably barely noticed. As a business-owner, however, it’s important for you to understand how this might impact the way people find your company if you utilize Google adwords to generate leads.
