Ads featuring Black Friday promotional flyers are being showcased at the top of Bing search results for retailers such as Macy’s, Home Depot and Walmart this week.
The ads all link to flyers hosted on Flipp.com. The SEM Post first spotted these ads on desktop search results. I wasn’t able to see them on desktop, but did see them on mobile results, such as the one above for Macy’s. Below is a desktop version that The SEM Post found.
The ads feature a thumbnail of the flyer in the upper-right corner and then individual items in a “Top deals” carousel below. Clicking on any of the images brings up the flyer on Flipp.com, Unfortunately all the product images link to the opening page of the flyer rather than to the item itself.
Google is giving Star Wars fans a special treat today on Chrome.
If you search “a long time ago in a galaxy far far away” – the famous first lines from the original 1977 Star Wars movie – the search results page mimics the film’s opening scene, with results scrolling through a Star Wars-themed galaxy background.
Google announced yesterday when it posted its new Star Wars: The Force Awakens #ChooseYourSide campaign that it was planning a few Star Wars Easter eggs in advance of the film’s release. This is the first one we’ve spotted.
