Google extends Adwords Company accreditation - but Excludes Asian, Australian and South American companies
Today Google sent out an email about changes to the Google Adwords Professionals Qualification scheme. For some time Google has allowed USA-based companies to become accredited Google Advertising Professional Companies as opposed to Individuals. (The Company qualification is a separate accreditation to the Individual recognition.)
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.
