ClickSeed Achieves Google Partner Status
Frederick, Maryland August 26, 2014
ClickSeed, a search engine optimization (SEO) and digital marketing agency based in Frederick, Maryland, is pleased to announce it has achieved official Google Partner status, making them the only agency in Frederick with that designation.
According to the Google Partners webpage, anyone can join Google Partners, but only trusted agencies can earn Google’s seal of approval. “The Google Partner badge means that we trust you, and your clients should, too,” according to the website. “It shows your business is healthy, your clients are happy, and that you follow Google best practices.” Achieving Partner status takes advanced knowledge of AdWords (plus certification), implementation of Google’s best practices in client accounts and a healthy amount of activity across a company’s managed accounts.
“ClickSeed is proud to be part of the Google Partners program and distinguish ourselves within the digital marketing industry,” said ClickSeed founder Jim Robinson. “Achieving Google Partner status is a testimonial of our commitment to quality.”
In order to be certified in AdWords, an agency needs at least one of its affiliated members to pass Google Partners’ Fundamentals exam and one of two advanced exams—either the Advanced Search or Advanced Display exam. To fulfill Google Partners’ Best Practices requirements, agencies must show that they’ve mastered the essentials covered in the Google certification exams and that they are maximizing their clients’ campaign performance.
“Even though we’ve been effectively leveraging the Adwords platform for more than a decade, this endorsement from Google assures our clients that we can do it at scale and with certified experts,” Robinson said. “It’s an important step forward for our business and we’re thrilled to be able to offer this to our clients.”
