Google Adwords Certified Individual

On the 30th of June I became Google Adwords Qualified in the category of Display Advertising. To achieve this I had to complete 2 120 multiple choice question tests with a pass mark of 85% or above. You can check my qualifications here:

Proves that Google dogfoods its own qualifications. 🙂

New host, new look!

Out with the old...

Today I moved my blog to Dreamhost, upgraded to WordPress 3.0 and changed themes. Please let me know what you think! I am moving towards shutting down my Windows VPS system as I simply no longer have the time to maintain it. Web hosting is such a mass-produced commodity these days that it makes no sense to maintain your own DNS, WWW or mail server. Dreamhost and Google Apps are now splitting the roles for well under $100 a year. That saves me a lot of time, and my time is worth about $100 an hour right? To the cloud!

How can charities get started with YouTube?

Each year Google runs a GoogleServe week, where we each choose a non-profit project we would like to contribute to. I chose to present to a group of 30+ non-profit organisations here in Sydney on how they can benefit from our recently launched YouTube non-profit program. Despite being only a small contribution it was a very rewarding experience, and I was really impressed with how sophisticated many of the charities are.

I am posting my presentation here so that any other charities who didn’t attend can view it at any time. I am also posting a 1-sheeter handout that I gave to all attendees which summarises the simple steps to getting their non-profit onto YouTube. I hope they help!
