Google Adwords Service Ads with Icons

Today I noticed for the first time on Google Maps ads with service icons embedded in the sponsored links results.

It looks like these types of ads fall under the purview of Google Advertising policies for ads with ad extensions.

Searching within Adwords help, I found the following explanation on how to add an icon to a location extension.

I then found more information about Google’s requirements for uploading Business Images or Icons:

I have yet to try this out for myself or any of my clients but will give it a try when and where it becomes appropriate.

I wonder what percentage of Google’s 1+ million advertisers will ultimately embrace and adopt business image or icon use within their Google advertising campaigns?
