DBS Pay Per Click Experts score 98% in Google Exams!

Two members of the DBS Pay Per Click Advertising team recently sat exams set by Google, allowing DBS Internet Marketing to continue to hold its Google Adwords Certified Partner status.

Julie Priestley and Allan Rayner sat two exams each in February and March. These were the Google Advertising Fundamentals Exam and the Google Search Advertising Advanced Exam. Each exam lasted 2 hours with over 100 questions per paper. The two DBS team members received impressive scores of 99%, 99%, 98% and 97%, giving them a fantastic average of 98.25%.

The extremely high pass rate allows DBS Internet Marketing to continue its Google AdWords Certified Partner status, and allows Julie and Allan to continue to provide the highest possible standard of customer service to DBS customers, with the latest up to date knowledge of Google AdWords.

"Achieving the coveted Google AdWords Certified Partner status shows our commitment to quality service" said David Clarke, Director of DBS Internet Marketing. "The extremely high marks are a credit to the DBS pay per click team who we are very proud of".

Google simplifies privacy policy but causes uproar

On Thursday 1st March, Google rolled out its new privacy policy around the world, despite warnings from the EU’s Justice Commissioner, Viviane Reading, that the changes were in breach of European law. Google however issued a statement saying "we are confident that our new simple, clear and transparent privacy policy respects all European data protection laws and principles”.

The essence of Google’s changes are that any private data now collected by one Google service can be shared with all of its other services, such as Gmail, YouTube and Blogger. So, any browsing data or web history which Google gathers when you’re signed in to your Google account can now be shared across all of their other sites. These are all sites owned by Google, but to avoid this, you can simply not log in to your Google account, and Google will just store your web data activity anonymously.

Google says that this is to offer better targeted advertising to users, and will enable it to tailor its search results more effectively. Google makes a huge amount of money from advertising, so the more information it has about you stored centrally and collected from all its different sites, the more accurately it can target you. This is good news for people who do Google pay-per-click advertising. The changes also brought together documents for more than 60 different sets of individual sites that are owned by Google into one single policy document covering all of the sites, simplifying its policies.
