Well folks, here it is. After operating Adwords since Feb. 2010, I finally took the plunge and took 2 out of the 3 Adwords exams, which is required for certification. I am happy to post that I passed.
Here is a screenshot proving this:
I personally would have liked a certification diploma to print and frame, but Google’s new Partner’s certification doesn’t let you do that. What’s more is that you cannot show your marks like the older exams let you do. The most you can do is add a Google Partners badge to your site, provided a certain spending threshold ($10k over 3 months) is met.
