The New Google AdWords Certification Program

From Google :

As the advertising industry has grown and evolved, so too has our relationship with advertising agencies. These companies, from SEMs to the largest traditional agencies, play a critical role in the continued success of Google, our advertisers and our industry — so we spend a lot of time talking to agencies about how we can make it easier for them to work with us and our advertisers.

We’ve had a lot of great feedback from agencies and today we’re announcing changes designed to offer them better training and more rigorous certification in AdWords proficiency, and to lower costs for those who help advertisers get the most out of AdWords. We’re also making it easier for advertisers to find certified agency partners to work with them on digital advertising. Here’s an overview of what’s changing today.

Raising the bar for Google AdWords Certification
We’re retiring our long-standing Google Advertising Professionals (GAP) program and replacing it with a new Google AdWords Certification program for those managing AdWords accounts on behalf of advertisers. The new program provides agencies and their employees with more up-to-date, comprehensive, strategy-focused training and certification on the latest tools and best practices for managing AdWords accounts, including:

  • New training materials to help agencies better understand recent changes in search marketing and AdWords functionality, available via webinar series, learning center, or on-site training at Google
  • More challenging certification exams to test practical application of knowledge and best practices (rather than simple recall of knowledge)
  • Advanced-level exams to highlight competency in search, display, reporting and analysis
  • A redesigned Certified Partner badge, which includes a “Click to Verify” element so advertisers can view the partner’s profile page for additional information.

For more information on the AdWords Certification Program or to create an account, visit the Google Certification program site and help center.

Helping advertisers find Google Certified Partners
Google Certified Partners can opt in to Google Partner Search, an online, searchable directory that helps advertisers identify Certified Partners that meet their criteria. Small and medium-sized advertisers who haven’t previously used an agency have told us that evaluating potential partners can be a daunting task, so we think Google Partner Search will be especially valuable for them.

To show up in advertiser searches through Google Partner Search, agencies must opt in and fill in details about their core attributes and capabilities. Searches can be filtered by location, agency experience within a particular budget range, the types of services provided and the industry verticals an agency serves. Advertisers can then evaluate the list of Certified Partners that meet their criteria and contact the partners who seem best suited to their needs. To learn more about Google Partner Search, visit the help center.

Introducing preferred AdWords API pricing
The Google AdWords API allows developers to build applications that interact directly with the AdWords platform. Agencies and developers of search engine marketing tools use these applications to manage large AdWords campaigns more efficiently and creatively.

Today, we’re announcing preferred AdWords API pricing. This gives qualified Google AdWords Certified Partners who manage client AdWords accounts free use of the AdWords API based on managed client spend. To apply, agencies must have an active agency profile page and be compliant with the AdWords API terms and conditions. We’ll evaluate applications for preferred AdWords API pricing based on the criteria listed here.

We hope preferred AdWords API pricing will encourage agencies and developers to experiment with new strategies, expand the functionality of their tools, and build more comprehensive client campaigns without worrying about increased costs. You can learn more about preferred pricing and how to apply at the preferred AdWords API pricing site.

We’re looking forward to receiving feedback on all of these initiatives and to continuing to improve our partnership with agencies.

Google Services for Websites Integrated into Parallels Plesk Panel

Several hosting companies have adopted the program since Last year, and thousands of websites have benefited from configuring services like AdSense, Custom Search and Webmaster Tools.

Today, we’ve taken an additional step to improve access to these tools. Parallels, a leading provider of control panel software for hosting companies, has integrated Google Services for Websites into Parallels Plesk Panel, used by millions of website owners globally to manage their sites.

Any hosting provider using Plesk 9.5 can now enable Google Services for Websites for their customers. Website owners generate more traffic to their websites by optimizing them using Webmaster Tools. They can engage their users with inline Web Elements, including maps, news, videos and conversations. Custom Search and Site Search provide Google-quality search on their websites for better user retention. AdSense helps website owners monetize their sites with relevant advertising. And besides providing these valuable services to millions of customers, hosting companies can also generate additional revenues through referral programs.

More information is on the Google Services for Websites page. If you are a hoster using Plesk, please contact Parallels for more information. You can learn more about the specific services integrated at the Inside AdSense blog, the Custom Search blog and the Webmaster Central blog.

Easy Way To Get Approved for Google Adsense

So you wish to monetize your website by publishing Google Adsense so that you can earn for every click. The first step in the process is getting your website approved to run these ads. Google will only allow quality site with quality content into its Adsense program.

If you have a website that has good regular updated content, lots of pages and good traffic then you probably won’t have any problems getting approved. If your site is new and you have a few pages of content and not may visitors then I would suggest not trying to get a site like this approved for the program. That does not mean that Adsense isn’t for you – you can still get approved.

There are two, quick, no hassle ways to get approved for the Google Adsense program. None of them require having your own website so you actually don’t need your own website to get paid from Adsense.

The first way is to get yourself a free blog from Google owns Blogger and it has a built in approval system for adsense. This means that anyone who has a blog on, who wished to participate in the Google Adsense program is going to get approved. The first thing you need to do after you set up your account is to make a couple of posts. It is best to keep these posts within the same subject. Create good quality content that people will want to read.

When you have finished setting up your blog, you can then go into your user control panel and apply for the adsense program. This is a simple step and once you follow all the instructions, you will be approved in a matter of minutes.

Another way to get approved for Google Adsense is to set up an account with This is a revenue sharing site that allows you to earn adsense income from the ads that are showing on your pages. Once you’ve created a page or hub on you can then go into your affiliate settings and apply for adsense. Since Hubpages is applying for you, you will not have any problems getting approved and you will be earning money from adsense in no time.

After you get approved, you can then use your adsense id anywhere you choose, even on your own website without having to get it approved individually. Just make sure you keep withing the terms and conditions of Google Adsense. You won’t want to get your Google Adsense account banned after you so easily got it, right?

Web Statistics -AWStats

AWStats is short for Advanced Web Statistics. AWStats is powerful log analyzer which creates advanced web, ftp, mail
and streaming server statistics reports based on the rich data contained in server logs. Data is graphically presented in
easy to read web pages.
Designed with flexibility in mind, AWStats can be run through a web browser CGI (common gateway interface) or directly
from the operating system command line. Through the use of intermediary data base files, AWStats is able to quickly
process large log files, as often desired. With support for both standard and custom log format definitions, AWStats can
analyze log files from Apache (NCSA combined/XLF/ELF or common/CLF log format), Microsoft’s IIS (W3C log format),
WebStar and most web, proxy, wap and streaming media servers as well as ftp and mail server logs.

AWStats’ reports include a wide range of information on your web site usage:
* Number of Visits, and number of Unique visitors.
* Visit duration and latest visits.
* Authenticated Users, and latest authenticated visits.
* Usage by Months, Days of week and Hours of the day (pages, hits, KB).
* Domains/countries (and regions, cities and ISP with Maxmind proprietary geo databases) of visitor’s hosts (pages, hits, KB,
269 domains/countries detected).
* Hosts list, latest visits and unresolved IP addresses list.

* User defined reports based on url, url parameters, referrer (referer) fields extend AWStats’ capabilities to provide even
greater technical and marketing information.
* Number of times your site is added to Bookmarks / Favorites.
* Screen size (to capture this, some HTML tags must be added to a site’s home page).
* Ratio of integrated Browser Support for: Java, Flash, Real G2 player, Quicktime reader, PDF reader, WMA reader (as
above, requires insertion of HTML tags in site’s home page).
* Cluster distribution for load balanced servers.
