Google gives Nexus 7 prime ad placement on homepage

updated 03:53 pm EDT, Tue August 28, 2012

Second-most popular page in the world sports Nexus 7 ad

Google has given its Nexus 7 tablet one of the most prime ad placements available on the Internet, with the seven-inch tablet now featured on Google's homepage just below the search box. The tablet, the result of a Google-Asus partnership, now features prominently on the second most popular page on the Internet, Alexa. The placement is likely aimed at using the site to generate the sort of sales Amazon -- the 10th most popular site -- saw for its Kindle Fire tablet, which was also featured prominently on the Amazon homepage.

Visitors to the Google homepage will still see the standard Google search interface. Below it, though, the Nexus 7 peeks up as though through a slit in the page. The text above reads "The playground is open. The new $199 tablet from Google." Clicking the link takes one to the Google Play Store page for the 8GB model of the Nexus 7.

Giving the Nexus 7 such enviable placement signifies that Google is serious about moving units of its already popular tablet. The search giant previously released a television commercial for the device (seen below), and the Nexus 7 is now available for purchase in the French, German, and Spanish Google Play Stores.
