June 13, 2002: Shameless Google-Promotion

At the top of a Google search, just underneath the "Searched the web for ..." bit, Google's been adding:

Try Google Answers to get help from expert researchers.

And at the bottom of your search you might find a new type of Google ad:

?Try Google Answers -
Want expert help with your search? Set your price. Get a great answer.
Shameless self-promotion

Since Google Answers is a revenue stream, I can understand them promoting it so heavily... Thankfully, they've been very tasteful about it so far.
