Google is launching its new 'AdWords Premier SMB Partner Program'. This vendor referral program has been designed for the small business advertisers who want to invest in AdWords. The small businesses will be referred to a list of companies that have been a part of Google's 'authorized reseller' program.

The Benefits Of Becoming A Partner:

The idea behind becoming a SMB partner is that it will allow the company’s customer base to expand and deliver better, more direct and reportable results to the advertisers. Since only a chosen few highly qualified companies become Premier SMB Partners, that is why becoming a partner will help companies stand apart from the crowd. When a business will partner with Google, they will be able to deliver the solutions the customers are looking for. Apart from the boost one can expect from the Google support, the Premier SMB Partners benefit from executive, technical, sales, marketing, account and partner management aid from the search engine.

In other words, the signed up vendors get huge benefits as compared to other Google reseller partners.

Google is launching a new AdWords feature titled bid for calls. It is a PPC as in Pay Per Call add on for the PC. It is not like Click to Call at all, but is different. The new program will launch in the US and UK in the beginning, before reaching other countries.

How Does Bid For Calls Work?
To begin with, it is based on the Call Metrics that is Google Voice infrastructure. While using this feature, the AdWords advertisers need Call Metrics and a Google Voice-generated call tracking number. The catch is that, now instead of paying $1 per completed call for call tracking, the advertisers have the option of bidding for each call.

As Google says, “To take advantage of bid-per-call, select the option to use a Google forwarding number when you set up Call Extensions so that our systems can measure when a call to your business occurs. With bid-per-call, you'll also get the benefit of detailed call reporting right in AdWords.”

Google has introduced new mobile search ad formats, that will be beneficial for businesses in the present smartphone driven market. The basic thought behind this is the integration of search ads with mobile apps. Google announced these new opportunities, as well as mobile-friendly ad related information along with the choice before the advertisers to send users to deep links inside an installed app. More importantly, physical proximity or closeness/ nearness to the searcher will affect the ranking of the site.

The New Google App Extensions:

Custom Search Ads for apps. When people will search within a mobile aap, then these ads will provide useful and relevant answers. With custom search ads the app developers get a chance to generate more funds.

As Google says, “Many people use Google to search for information about mobile apps. This ad format helps consumers right when they're searching for information about an app, linking them directly to the App Store or Android Marketplace to download. We’ve recently enabled app developers to include app icons and information about the app in their ad unit so that people can make more informed decisions about whether they want to download the app.”

So, there is now the facility to directly send mobile searchers to deep link in your app, and then there are the ad 'circulars' where you can send the information about any ad from the desktop to your mobile phone. Here is a video to understand better:
