More Google Qualified Companies in the UK than the USA
Tuesday, 14 March 2006
We have just done a big update to the WhoisaGAP website which we use to monitor the qualification levels of Pay Per Click teams across the industry, this included adding in proper country classifications - its not entirely altruistic, we want to know who is who.
Lets get to the stats*
Globally the individual / company split looks like:
By country the number of professionals is:
That landscape changes quite dramatically when you look at who are Qualified Companies and the UK has nearly double the number of the USA. So at the end of last month nearly half the professionals in the UK achieved company status by hitting their employee and spend levels of greater than $100,000. Let's keep up the good work.
*Obviously setting a country is a bit awkward where a company or individual trades in multiple countries, so we picked their main point of presence. Also it's a bit odd quite a few companies that I would have thought should be on the list are not because they aren't using the verification URL's so although they display the Qualified logo (Individual or Company) you can't authenticate it, so either they aren't really qualified or their webmaster is lazy.
