Google Replaced The Sponsored Label With The Ads Label

  •   July 1, 2020

Yesterday Google has removed the “Sponsored” label on the Google Shopping Ads and replaced it with the black “Ads” label you see on normal Google Search Ads. Ginny Marvin from Search Engine Land said this is “streamlining” the ads label.

Here are before and after screen shots that I saw myself on the desktop results.

Ginny also produced an excellent history of Google Ads labels.

I prefer it read “Ads” versus “Sponsored” – so I am happy with this change.
