Google AdWords Certified Partner

The Importance of Getting Certified


If you are a professional involved with an AdWords agency, or in any type of search engine marketing, there are three major advantages in getting certified:

  • Improving your knowledge of AdWords tools and their practical application
  • Acquiring a globally recognized stamp of approval certifying basic AdWords knowledge
  • Applying expert knowledge through advanced exams covering search, display, reporting, and analysis.

The Google AdWords Certification Program consists of two exams: The Advertising Fundamentals exam and one advanced-level exam.

Structure of the Exams

These exams have a multiple choice format, with over 100 questions per exam. The exams cover all basic information and some advanced information involved in getting started with the AdWords program, what it consists of, and the basic tools used to create and manage campaigns.

It is important for Google that individuals become certified, so that companies who seek search engine marketing services can be confident of their choice, thus providing more credibility to these services.

Furthermore, Google wants to ensure that their AdWords usage policies are honored, which increases the quality factor of the individuals who manage AdWords accounts.

AdWords Certified Partner Disclosure

On February 1st, Google rolled out new policies regarding third parties who handle AdWords accounts for clients.

These policies dictate that the client is required to know the following information when employing an AdWords agency:

  • AdWords Costs
  • Clicks
  • Impressions

At White Shark Media, this policy has had no effect on how we do our day-to-day reporting, or on our relationship with clients.

We’ve already found that it’s much more valuable to share our knowledge and results with the clients directly. The best way to ensure complete transparency is to work on the client’s own account, and this is exactly what we do.

We welcome the new policies as a way for the AdWords Certified Partner program to gain more credibility, as it’s only certified partners Google will be controlling.
