Google Updates Its Image Search

Pictures are worth a thousand words — or, for Google, a billion page views a day.

On Tuesday Google announced a series of updates to the design and presentation of the image search section on its Web site. The company also said it would begin offering advertising with images on these pages.

Image ads are the latest in a string of new ad types that Google has been trying out. People often search images for queries about shopping, travel and entertainment, which lend themselves well to advertisements, said Ben Ling, Google’s director of search products, at the press conference on Tuesday in San Francisco.
