Google homepage promotes Pixel pre-orders despite the stock being exhausted for most models
Building up on what appears to be Google’s most aggressive marketing campaign for its in-house hardware products, some users are now reporting that the Google.com homepage is showing a pop-up ad that promotes Pixel and Pixel XL pre-orders.
Users from various countries across the globe claim that they’ve seen the pop-up ad being displayed. Allegedly, the ad is showing up on both desktop and mobile devices.
While Google is no stranger to promoting its own hardware on the Google.com homepage, this is the first time that the company is using a pop-up to promote its hardware.
Interestingly, Google has exhausted its pre-order stock for most models. To us, this appears to suggest that the pop-up ad is here to stay and will probably keep rearing its head throughout the upcoming weeks leading up to the 2016 holiday shopping season.
