Google Launches Engage In US and UK For Smaller Agencies [adwordsagency.blogspot.com]
Are you a US or UK-based Webmaster? Web designer? SEO? Marketing consultant? Freelancer? or offer web related services to small and medium businesses? then keep on reading...

At Google, we’re committed to the success of the digital economy and we believe that helping small business get online and thrive is fundamental to that success.

We recognize that many SMBs rely on freelancers and small agencies to create and manage their online presence as well as help them with their online marketing. To make the jobs of these agencies easier, we’ve launched a new training and incentives program called Google Engage for Agencies.

Google doing some marketing of it's own. Interesting.

Then kill the anti net-neutrality proposals and talk some sense into states that are passing nexus tax laws, please.

Fun program to take part in, not sure how groundbreaking it is however. I'm sure it has some tasty morsels...

How can they expect to help me if they forced me to block all the cookie/toolbar-spyware/LSO etc.. junk on all of my clients computers before I even start working on their sites? How can they expect me to participate when they have been trying to squeezzzz me/and my clients out of SERP for past several years every chance they get?

Can't wait - We're a small agency in Plymouth, Devon in England

I've been doing PPC since GoTo when I lived in the Bay Area

Google THANKS and bring it on!

Just be careful. There's an inherent conflict of interest in this arrangement.

everything they do is a trojan horse, i could see them playing nice for a while then going back and putting the small agency out of biz, or putting the squeeze on them.

goog doesn't play very nice with webmasters now, even though they made us think they did in the beginning.

gota watch everything those guys do very closely, they've already shown us they have no issues about cutting throats at a moments notice.

I signed up. New way to receive coupons and some decent modules to have new employees review. I'm still with the skeptical lot on this one though...

I signed up - haven't heard anything - do I assume I've been turned down?

I finally went through the "basic training". Very basic, but I instantly was sent 20 AdWords coupons. Also, it's interesting to see that there is section to receive vouchers to take the AdWords exams and become qualified for free... I wish they had done that months ago!
