The New Green Ad Label for Adwords

Google has started testing a new green ad label for Adwords. The previous version was the yellow label one and Google has decided to convert the yellow ones into green.

The experiment is in the testing phase and Google has still not pushed on the changes. There is still no official confirmation for it that Google will roll the new bright green ad labels or not

 A recent Nielsen study claims that “virtually all Yelp users (98%) have made a purchase at a business they found on Yelp, with nearly 90% of them doing so within a week”. Customers visit sites like Yelp only to find ratings and reviews about a company when they intend to buy any product or to use any service. 


The power of social reviews is growing and businesses who are failing to implement strategies to grow their online reviews are falling behind. A positive review is always great for the business.
