Google Expanding AdWords Professional Program to Non US Companies
Google announced via email today that they are expanding the companies which can qualify for the Google Adwords Professionals program. Until now Google has only allowed US companies to qualify for GAWS Professional Accreditation, now Google is expanding the service into Europe and Africa, but bypassing some of their most powerful AdWords serving countries. Tim @ Threadwatch has a write up on this.
Now Google has extended the Company scheme to allow orgnaisations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa to become Adwords Qualified Companies – but for some reason has still excluded companies from Asia, South America and Australia (and Antartica) from participating. Which frankly, leaves me feeling a little bemused.
Why does Google see fit to offer this accreditation to companies based in Nigeria, Romania and the Palestinian Territory while denying it to firms in, say, Japan, Australia or French Polynesia? If you work at Google, please enlighten us.
