Google Power SearchingI decided to take the Power Searching with Google course this time around and I got my certificate last night.

This is the second time Google is running this course, the first batch of certificates to the first class, went out in late July and now the second batch went out last night, in mid October.

Since I took the course, I was awarded a certificate of completion. Here is the email I received from Google, including the certificate (click to enlarge):

Honestly, the course was a breeze, but I write about search features every day - so I guess it was a breeze because I know the material.

Some students of the course are looking for their certificates. Either you didn't pass or it is caught in your spam filter.

A Google Web Search Help thread has conversation from both the first class and second class about the certificate.

Well done Barry! I also got my certificate today and I have to agree with you that for those of us working in the search industry, it was a rather easy course. Perhaps they should consider creating a more advanced test geared towards SEOs and Internet Marketers.

I passed too Barry, although I only got 95%. Interestingly though, even though I use search every day it got me thinking about some better habits that I had forgotten about. I think they were doing it to promote their Course Builder technology. I wrote about passing and the Course Builder stuff over at Google+ https://plus.google.com/u/0/100968476447404156498/posts/Z6UGHPCSA93
