Advance Local, the parent company of Advance Media New York, has achieved status as a 2022 Google Premier Partner – a designation that puts Advance among the top three percent of Google Partners in the country.
To qualify as a Premier Partner, a company must meet Google’s certification, performance and ad spend requirements. The company must demonstrate year-over-year advertising client growth, client retention, results-delivering product diversification beyond Search, measured by spending percentages in Display, Apps, Video and Shopping and investment in Google Ads or Google Marketing Platform.
“Congratulations to our Premier Partners for being among the top 3% of Google Partners in the United States. These companies stand out based on their commitment to developing product expertise, building new client relationships, and helping their current clients grow. We look forward to supporting them as they help their customers succeed online,” said Davang Shah, Senior Director, Google Ads Marketing.
The Google Partners program has undergone significant changes for 2022, including redefining what it means to be a Premier Partner through new, advanced program requirements and offering new Premier Partner benefits to support growth and success with Google Ads.
