Google has changed and revamped their Advertising Professional area. The new area will have a lot more features and I guess is part of Google’s way of actualising their theory on more emphasis on development and training to compensate for the withdrawal of ‘Best Practise Funding’ at the beginning on this year. Mmmm. Still, check it out.
One thing though. Why have Google ‘nofollowed’ the company link from the qualified company/professional profile pages? It wasn’t a nofollow before. Surely with the spend criteria and exams, etc. they can vouch for this link. Was it being abused? If so it wouldn’t have been hard to do a hand check now would it? Or put some rules around the destination of the link?
