So how do you identify a REAL AdWords Certified Partner?
Quite simply, they must display a logo and it MUST be linked to their registration page at Google. If you click their logo, and it doesn’t take you through to the correct page, then they are NOT a real AdWords Certified Partner.
I really wish Google would crack down on those companies fraudulently displaying these logos. The exams are now extremely hard to pass, and are a real indicator of quality.
If a company or individual is only displaying the old style Google AdWords Professional logo – this means they have passed only the older far easier exams (almost anyone could pass them!).
With the new exams, it’s compulsory to take 2 out of the 4 exams. Some, like myself, choose to take them all to prove competence in Analytics and the Display network as well as the AdWords search network.
