Google will stop displaying its controversial banner search ads, per the company's head of search, Amit Singhal. The ads began appearing in feeds in October and generated a backlash. From the start, Google called the banner ads a "brand image experiment" with 30 companies and did not say they would become a permanent search page fixture. Their removal comes along with other visual tweaks to Google's search engine results page.
