Google Local Pack Ad Spotted

A paid ad was spotted recently in Google's local pack indicating that there is testing currently happening.

In June, Google announced and released local search ads on Google Maps, so this seems like a logical next step.

Kind of a bummer that this will likely be expanded to the local pack further increasing paid results and pushing organic even further down the page.

No official word from Google yet.
