New Google Partners Program Goes Live


After a lot of saga, postponements, changes and concessions, Google has finally launched the new Google Partner program details, two years later. Google also launched a new Premier Partner status for the top 3% of partners.

Google said “over the last two years, we’ve evolved the Google Partners program based on industry changes and your valuable feedback. As a result, we’ve aligned our benefits to meet your needs in three key areas: Education & Insights, Access & Support, and Recognition & Rewards.”

The Premier Partner status gives you a new badge and these benefits:

  • Product betas – Receive ongoing access to the most current product betas. 
  • Advanced Google Ads support – Access 24-hour advanced ads support to help you quickly and efficiently resolve your clients’ issues.
  • Executive experiences –  Attend invite-only industry events, such as roundtable discussions with Google leaders, sessions with other Premier Partners, and opportunities to hear from industry thought leaders. 
  • Premier Partner Awards – The Premier Partner Awards highlight excellence in digital marketing and showcase Premier Partners that help drive results for clients with Google Ads.
  • Newly redesigned 2022 Premier Partner badge – Signal to clients and the industry that you’re recognized as a leading partner with your 2022 Premier Partner badge.
  • High-value incentives – Help your clients get a better start with their campaigns with Google Ads credits.

All Google Partners and Premier Partners, in select markets, will now also gain access to the monthly Insights Briefing from Think with Google, which has the latest insights from Google to stay ahead on changing consumer behaviors and industry trends.

Plus later this month all Partners will be listed in the brand new Google Partners directory⁠—available.

George Nguyen summed up a lot of these changes well on Search Engine Land.

Here is Greg of the year’s take on it:

Google Sues Company That Scams Small Businesses By Impersonating Google

Google Sues Company That Scams Small Businesses By Impersonating Google

Google announced it has filed a lawsuit against “scammers who sought to defraud hundreds of small businesses by impersonating Google through telemarketing calls.” You know, the calls from “Google” asking you to claim your business or update your business information. Those calls are most likely, not from Google but from a fake company pretending to be Google to scam you out of money.


Google said that this company also “created websites advertising the purchase of fake reviews, both positive and negative, to manipulate reviews of Business Profiles on Google Search and Maps.”

He said some scammers have tried to abuse and profit from the free Google Business Profile tool “through deceptive and predatory practices.” Google said in 2021 Google had to stop more than 12 million attempts from bad actors to create fake Business Profiles and nearly 8 million attempts from bad actors to claim Business Profiles that didn’t belong to them.

So it filed this lawsuit (PDF) against GVerifier Technologies LLC d/b/a G Verifiers and
G Verifier Pro; GVerifier Softech Services LLC d/b/a G Verifiers and G Verifier Pro; Shri Hari
GoMarketin LLC d/b/a GHyper, GHyperlocal, and G Verifications; and Infinity GoMarketin LLC
d/b/a GHyper, GHyperlocal, and G Verifications. The suit says these defendants allegedly “make false and misleading statements about their identity, products, and supposed affiliation with Plaintiff Google LLC (“Google”) in order to maliciously exact payments and sell fake or worthless services.”

Local SEOs are happy about this because they are just tired of working with small businesses that get scammed by these companies.
