What do you think about the idea of Google licensing people to act as Adsense consultants?
They would train up independent consultants in the program, give them the skills and knowledge needed to help others optimize their ads. Then they give them some sort of accreditation or license that them ‘official’ status so that they can be hired by businesses and individuals wanting to optimize their adsense advertising.
I think it would be in Google’s best interests to offer this type of program. It would mean their publishers are better educated about the program, able to be more effective in what they do which in turn benefits them, Google and Google’s advertisers.
I know there are Adsense consultants already out there but to make them ‘official’ or ‘accredited’ could help Google to ensure the quality (and ethics) of advice being given is of a high standard.
Of course if there are any Adsense Execs reading this who want to fly me over to train me up as the first official Adsense Consultant – I’d be open to the offer! :-)
I’m interested in others opinions. Would you or your company pay for this type of advice? What would be the shortcomings of such a program?
