Introducing AdWordsAdvisor
Another Googler volunteers some free time...

 11:13 pm on Jul 17, 2003 (gmt 0)

Hey everyone, I was looking back over the list of questions that resulted in the "GoogleGuy answers" thread:
and there was one question that I wanted to mention:

Q: Have you ever considered inviting another Google employee to participate at Webmaster World? Might this be a good opportunity?

I was thinking about that question a while ago because I don't make it over to the AdWords forum as much as I'd like to, and I was thinking that it would be wonderful if some Googler would volunteer a little free time to answer questions about AdWords. Sure enough, I was talking to someone the other day who answers AdWords questions, and they mentioned that they'd be happy to help answer some questions on the web.

I talked to Brett and the Google/AdWords forum moderators, and folks were groovy about having another Googler show up from time to time. So without further ado, I'd like to introduce AdWordsAdvisor.

I'll give you some background info, just so you know what to expect. Just like with GoogleGuy, AdWordsAdvisor (AWA?) is going to be a single person. They'll have a different posting style than me. I'm pretty casual; they may be a little more formal--we'll see. We're going to keep AWA's identity anonymous in case they want to go on vacation, or if we ever need to switch to a different person in a pinch. AWA is going to stop by in their limited free time (mostly during work hours), so don't expect a ton of posts. If I had to guess, I would expect AdWordsAdvisor to stop by and post less often than me, because let's face it--I need to get out more.

They might start out pretty slowly to get a feel for things, and don't expect them to post on really controversial or strategic or technical threads. The person serving in this role is very familiar with AdWords and answers customer questions about nuts and bolts stuff and improving account performance. But they're not an engineer and not a techie, so I would mostly look for answers to basic questions to help newer folks with AdWords.

That's all I can think of right now, but I'll chime in if there's something I forgot. Oh, one last thing: I know just about everyone knows this, but please be nice. I've had a good long time on WebmasterWorld to thicken my skin, but this is someone who is just starting out. Thanks everyone!

Appreciate the clarification -> I had been thinking the 2nd person was a joke until reading your post now. :)

Seems that Google is continuing their commitment to open webmaster communication, imho, part & parcel of your continued success. Thanks!

Welcome AdWordsAdvisor - Glad to have you on-board!

I expect a good % of people here will be reading your comments with extreme interest.

You'll find us a friendly bunch, I'm sure :)



 11:26 pm on Jul 17, 2003 (gmt 0)

Welcome AdWordsAdvisor! Thanks for joining us. I promise I won't barrage you with questions at least until you get your feet wet. ;)


 11:37 pm on Jul 17, 2003 (gmt 0)

AdwordsAdvisor, Welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com]!

Wow, talk about doing whatever you can to appease the web marketing community, definitely a great move on Googles part.


 11:56 pm on Jul 17, 2003 (gmt 0)

Nyce Tyming <wink>, and glad to have you around. Someone else's threads to look at, my poor wife (widow) will have even less time with me.

Keep up the good work Google!


 11:58 pm on Jul 17, 2003 (gmt 0)

:) Welcome - I have questions in store for you I'll save for the right time. In anycase I look forward to hear your feedback to other peoples questions :)


 12:55 am on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

Welcome AdwordsAdvisor - we're glad to have you around! and thank you GoogleGuy for making it happen - it's a terrific idea and a win-win for everyone who Googles.



 1:08 am on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

The customer service at AdWords is generally pretty good, not sure how many questions I might have-

Will AWA address issues surrounding Adsense backfires, goof-ups, and glitches?


 1:59 am on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

My first post!

Thanks to everyone for the very warm welcome. I'm truly looking forward to being a part of this excellent forum. I've been an almost daily reader since early January, and can't wait to start posting in earnest.

I know I have a very high standard to match - that set by GoogleGuy. I'll do my best. Only 1642 posts to go, and I'll be where he is today!

Thanks GoogleGuy, for making this happen. Thanks also to Brett, Shak, and the other moderators for their support in advance.

I hope to add value, and I know I'll learn a lot myself.

Until post #2, thanks again!


Late breaking PS to Martinibuster - Because I'm not a part of the AdSense team - and not extremely familiar with that program - I think it would be best that I not address issues in that arena.

Welcome, best wishes, and thank you ~ AWA, BT, GG and ...


 3:51 am on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

Looking forward to your participation AWA. I'm sure your participation will greatly help AdWords advertisers - both newbies & pros.


 3:59 am on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

Great idea everyone. To me the more SE reps on WebmasterWorld the better! I look forward to this - helping make discussing how to make our Adwords spend more effective in this forum even better.


 5:05 am on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

Welcome! I got some questions already. But they probably break the Terms of Service. I always find those too tiring to read so I'll lurk a little bit and get a feel if I can ask ;)


 5:30 am on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

1st time I go to bed early, and wake up to this :)

AdwordsAdvisor, Welcome to Webmasterworld.

I am sure you are going to have lots of fun, and remember if there is anything you dont know about adwords, just feel free to ask, we dont mind giving you a few tips...



 6:00 am on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

Great initiative - and Welcome!

As long as you don't make any dramatic changes to your ad-algo I don't think you need to thicken your skin :)

Care to share a bit of how the adwords team is organised (in general non-strategic terms)?


 6:22 am on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

...go to bed early...

Since when does Brett let mod's sleep?

Great to have you here, AWA. I know you appreciate my $3/month. Looking forward to you helping me double that :)



 7:01 am on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

Shak and everyone else around here, thanks for helping make AdWordsAdvisor feel at home. :)


 2:21 pm on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

Hey AA, and welcome!

Sorry to pelt you with controversy right off the bat, but can you address this thread when you get a chance? [webmasterworld.com...]

It concerns the automatic correction of misspelled queries in AdWords. (This thread used to be linked from the front page of WW, but that link recently disappeared -- anyone know what's up with that?) Thanks!


 2:39 pm on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

I've been an almost daily reader since early January, and can't wait to start posting in earnest.

Aha! A lurker! I knew it! ;) Or maybe a different nic previously?

Welcome to Webmaster World, AA!


 4:28 pm on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

Welcome, welcome, welcome!

(everything else has been said, so I won't say it again.)


 9:42 pm on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

Welcome AA

Hope WW members don't drive you to the the other famous A.A.

Welcome AdWordsAdvisor :)

Welcome to Webmasterworld AWA ....


 11:03 pm on Jul 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

Thanks again to everyone for welcoming me to this Forum. Much appreciated! It is amazing how much I still get a kick out of being a part of the Internet Community. A very nice place IMHO.

I should probably say that I am most likely to be reading/posting late in the day as a rule. The days tend to be rather, uhm, full!

I hope to 'show up' every week-day to keep abreast of things, and hope to post more frequently as I get more familiar with my new surroundings.

And by the way, I'll answer to AdWordsAdvisor, AWA, or AA. Proud to be any one of those!


 1:54 am on Jul 19, 2003 (gmt 0)

take your time, AWA.

but this thing about posting in the evening. ummm, that is what we all said at one point:)

you'll get bitten by the WW bug, and well, things will never be the same.


 2:54 am on Jul 19, 2003 (gmt 0)

Soon we will find AA signing up for affiliate programs, creating "buy viagra online" pages, asking about link structure, and buying PR.... hmm... well, maybe not that last one.


 3:31 am on Jul 19, 2003 (gmt 0)

AA, Adwords Anonymous :)


 11:05 am on Jul 24, 2003 (gmt 0)

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, Double A


 11:07 am on Jul 24, 2003 (gmt 0)

Yup welcome aboard AA

Im sure you will come in very handy as im new to adwords!
