This is actually very interesting. Providing quite a convenient umbrella for adwords and Google other types of advertising. Could be quite a useful tool for the new marketers looking to go online.

the more hand-holding they do in this space, the better it will be for their bottom line; good move.

I'm impressed with how simple and clear Google's presentation here is. You have to read and click, read and click. This is typical of their approach.

Anyone can build such a how-to presentation to make a case.

The owners of YouTube didn't use video, they simply do competent webmaster work and tell a good story well.

I dunno - all the links, beyond one or two levels deep, are javascript:void(0); actions and don't work for me. LOL. At least, on Firefox. On MSIE I see they're supposed to provide a pop-up with more links.

E.g. after reading and clicking for a minute, I get to:
[google.com...]

None of the links on that page work, and the one that does (the TV guidelines one) links to "We're sorry, but the information you've requested cannot be found"...

I'm interested to know how to create a TV ad, however that TV page just links to Adwords signup wizzard. How are you supposed to create a TV ad if you already have an account?

Seb7, there is a special section of the AdWords Help Center that covers TV ads - which you'll find starting here:

TV ads:
[adwords.google.com...]

I think you'll find your question covered there - as well as a ton of other information.

I thought this site was a joke.

It's not much of an information portal.

AWA, can you check your link? It is returning an 'information can not be found' page.

Hmmm, too weird. Just tested it in Chrome, IE and FF - and working fine for my in all three.

Is it not working for anyone else?

Let's try this, arieng. Could you try the page below, and if it works for you then follow the 'TV Ads' link in the bread crumb trail at the top?

[adwords.google.com...]

And, though I know it sounds lame, clearing cache and cookies may also make it work for you.

Oops. I'm using Chrome and it looks like cookies and cache did it. Sorry for the bother.

"Google For Advertisers" Information Site

Note: TV campaigns can't be created within the new AdWords interface.... please contact us to request access to TV Ads.

It really is an information site! I couldn’t do anything new online. Disappointed!

"The new look of AdWords
This Help Center is for the new AdWords interface. If you've recently switched from using the previous interface, see our New Interface Overview to get started.
We're sorry, but the information you've requested cannot be found. Please try searching or browsing the AdWords Help Center for answers to your AdWords questions."

If I'm logged into my Google account, I get the above for your link.
In a different browser where I'm not logged in, it works.

I assume it's either because my account isn't eligible for video ads, or something to do with using the new Adwords interface. Either way it's not very helpful material on the supposed information portal.

this particluar thing i've linked below wasn't in their new portal site, but i think it's the kind of cool / informative / effective messages they should provide to advertisers, especially new ones, at their new portal.

Three Simple Steps to Better Bids

i thought the interactive bidding tutorial was fun - i recommended it to all of my clients, just so they understand things better as we progress along.
