The most popular search engine in the world recently made headlines after it announced plans to introduce a credit card program into the United Kingdom and expand it in the United States.

IDG News reports that after first launching the program as a pilot, Google is expanding its AdWords Business Credit card to pay for advertising on the search engine. In a recent blog post, Google VP treasurer Brent Callinicos wrote that after the major success of the initial program, the company was looking forward to rolling it out more fully.

“To make it easier for small businesses to pay for their AdWords campaigns and track their spending, last July we piloted AdWords Business Credit in the US, a credit card specifically for AdWords. More than 1,400 businesses from a variety of industries participated in the pilot and their feedback was overwhelmingly positive,” the company wrote in a blog post.

Google made other credit card news when it came out with a new mobile payment system. Last year, the firm came out with Google Wallet, an app that allows people to pay with smartphones at an appropriate credit card terminal.
