Google just announced the launch of its new Certified Publishing Partner program for AdSense and DoubleClick.
Partners in the program are considered (by Google) experts at account management services including full-service ad operations, implementation and testing; mobile, web app and responsive design and development; content moderation; video integration; monetization; and ad customization.
"Certified Publishing Partners are trained experts on AdSense, DoubleClick for Publishers, and DoubleClick Ad Exchange who could help you earn more from your sites while also saving you time," explains Google SMB Publishing Marketing Manager Sahar Golestani. "Whether you’re just starting out with ads, fine-tuning your existing ad setup or looking for brand new revenue sources, Certified Publishing Partners are ready to help you achieve your goals. They know how to make online ads work harder for you so you can spend more time creating and publishing your great content."
"When you see the Certified Publishing Partner badge it means that a partner has been carefully vetted and meets Google's rigorous qualification standards," says Golestani. "They have received high rankings in client satisfaction. They are, in short, a trusted business partner."
