Until recently web site operators wanting help with creating
and managing a pay per click advertising campaign were on their
own when it came to determining the qualifications, expertise
level and credibility of those offering such assistance. Thankfully,
that has all changed with the introduction of the "Qualified
Google Advertising Professional" designation. It is clear
that Google realizes that in order for it to maximize its own
profit potential it must have customers (PPC advertisers) that
are running successful campaigns. It also recognized that most
"do it yourselfers" are not going to have the skill
set and experience required to extract the maximum benefit from
an Adwords campaign. In response, Google launched a program
whereby individuals could participate in an extensive training
program, meet a number of stringent criteria and achieve official
recognition from Google itself. Such individuals earn the credentials
of "Qualified Google Advertising Professional" from
Google. This web site serves to provide you with an easy way
to locate these Qualified Google Advertising Professionals.
