Introducing Enhanced Ad Sitelinks: The War on SEO Wages On...

April 11, 2018

In the latest move to make SEO harder and increase Google revenues, Google yesterday introduced a new ad format called Enhanced Ad Sitelinks. This new ad format has some similarities to the existing site links ad format, but instead shows related ads in your AdWords account rather than your site links.

Here's what the new super-sized adwords sitelink looks like now:

In testing, Google said that "ads with enhanced sitelinks were more useful and relevant" and "clickthrough rates were significantly higher than the same ad with traditional 2- and 3-line sitelinks." Obviously (duh), this has something to do with the fact that the new ads can occupy up to 3 times as much real estate on a Google SERP. It looks like a highly effective way to dominate above-the-fold search results, and further push organic search results lower down on the page for the most valuable keyword searches.

So, for my SEO-only friends out there, isn't it time to start considering PPC advertising?
