It used to be that all Google sponsored listings were managed though AdWords.  In the past several months, Google has expanded the scope of  sponsored results to include Seller Ratings and now Google Tags.

For a flat monthly fee of $25, businesses can enhance their listings that appear on and Google Maps with a yellow tag that emphasizes specific information such as a coupon, video, website, menu, reservations, photos, or a custom message. Tags do not affect the ranking of the listings and the sponsored area of the search result is clearly indicated.
