Google AdWords Professional Verification Seal Not Verifying

Google AdWords Professional Logo.jpgKevin Gibbons reports that Google Adwords Qualified Professional logo's stop verifying. The Google AdWords Professional Logo can be placed on sites where the company or individual has meet the requirements by Google to be certified as an AdWords Professional. In the past, if you clicked on the logo or seal, it would verify that the user is a legit individual. Now, for many, it takes you to the AdWords Login home page.

I feel it is probably a bug and not some devious and evil scam to get people to sign up directly with Google.

If you are logged into Google, you should get the verification. For example, Kevin Gibbons status shows up for me, only when I am logged in.

This individual has met Google's requirements to attain recognition as a Qualified Google Advertising Professional.

To become Qualified, this individual has:

• Accepted the terms of our programme. • Managed at least one AdWords account in a master account for 90 days. • Built and maintained our 90-day spend requirement. • Passed the Google Advertising Professional Exam.

Kevin Gibbons is one of the first 100 Google Qualified Advertising Professionals in the UK.

I just received this email from AdWords support and this is apparently affecting a small amount of people and they are working to fix it..... "Hello Carrie, Thank you for your email and notifying us of this issue. Our technical team has investigated this situation and determined that this is an issue affecting a small number of advertisers. We are working as quickly as possible to resolve this issue and apologize for any inconvenience." They suggested I send a screenshot to clients until they get it fixed.... Hope this sheds some light.. ~Carrie

Sounds like they're on it, so that's good.
