Search Image Ads on Search Network Discontinued! No Announcement By Google on ANOTHER Major Change!

 

Hi All,

 

Recently I had noticed that my Search Image Ads on the "Search Network" had stopped receiving impressions.

After posting here in the Adwords Community, I decided to contact Google Support (email).

I received a response that Search Image Ads on Search Network Discontinued!

I then contacted Google (by phone) to verify that this was in fact true. (Yes, in was verified as true).

Needless to say, I began inquiring about notification to users either in the blog, email or ANYWHERE and was told that they didn't announce or notify users...No Announcement By Google on ANOTHER Major Change!

The only way I found out was that my Image Ads on the Search network stopped.

I realize that Google can choose what services to offer but this is NOT a good way to conduct business and to treat users (paying customers)!

 

I could go on and on with a rant about the poor communications and poor customer notifications but I save that till others respond with their own thoughts and comments.

FWIW - The SEO folks have also noticed changes in Image Search ranking, I wonder if the two could be related?

Any updates? Are image search ads really discontinued?
