Hey everyone, I was looking back over the list of questions that resulted in the "GoogleGuy answers" thread:
[webmasterworld.com...]
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!

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.

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!

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?

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!

Best,
AdWordsAdvisor

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.

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.

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 ;)

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)?

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 :)

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!

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

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!

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

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.
