  Microsoft testing huge 'Hero ads' in Bing Smart Search results
Time: 14:51 EST/19:51 GMT | News Source: The Verge | Posted By: Byron Hinson

Google's experimentation with massive banner ads in search results hasn't gone over particularly well with users, but that's not stopping Microsoft from trying something similar. The company has announced that beginning today, it's testing out "Hero ads" featuring select brand partners in the United States. These huge advertisements appear in Bing Smart Search; in other words, they're tied directly into Windows 8.1. Hero ads appear when you search for one of the specific brands in question, so they essentially take the place of regular web results. But you won't be seeing them come up when searching for unrelated topics.
