Glenn Gabe tweeted yesterday that he is now seeing the black "Ad" label appearing in 3-pack ads. Glenn said "I feel bad for the local businesses out there. I first thought there were 4 listings in the local pack... Nope, the black ad label just blends right in. Wow."


I couldn't agree more it actually looks more like a totally organic 4-pack now.

Are you seeing the black ad labels?

Back in May Google released a redesign for the mobile search results with a new black “Ad” label and favicons by the URLs in the organic search result snippets. Several months after that launch, Google is now rolling out this redesign to desktop search results.

Can anyone suggest why our favicons do not appear for our businesses in search results but other businesses on the same SERP show favicons. Thank you.
