As a user point of view what I experienced that Adblock plus is no more blocking these ads. This is something in huge favour for Google.
Also as a Digital Marketer, there is slight shift of organic results to cpc results. Again Google is making money here. But yeah there is equivalent opportunity for us as well. Even on keywords we do not have good SEO ranking, we can have some different results & slightly different CPL/CPC cost.
But overall I favour this change.
