Picture Of A Google Power Searching Certificate

Google Power Searching CertificateYesterday I covered how those who took the Google Power Searching class were upset they didn't immediately receive their printable certificates upon the class finishing.

Well, several hours after writing the story, Google indeed sent out the certificates to those who participated and completed the online Google searching course.

I have pictures from two people who completed the course, including Aygul and former Googler Pedro Dias. Pedro boasted that he scored 100% on the course. I'd hope so, you did spend several years working on the search quality team. :)

That being said, here is a larger view of the certificate:

I am not sure when or if Google will continue to offer these courses. Aygul requested "more advanced courses." From the looks of it, the course was pretty basic and any SEO should have easily been able to score a 100% on it.

May be people who have completed the course are not SEOs. And for them (and for anyone) its a big achievement to be honored by Google for their hard work.

Haha,, No, was just trying to say SEOs can do this quite easily but its great to see people whose niche is not SEO are too making their mark here.

Is there anywhere showing what the courses were about? that would be interesting to see.

Looks like the course content is still available after clicking Register, no registration required though. Content is video or text (nice to have a choice), with activities after each lesson. Copying all course content for posterity now...

Useless piece of paper....let me wipe my you know what with it ...

This was a community course and was at the right level for the general public. I hope it is offered again so the community can get more literate on Google searching.
