Hi Kishora,

As far I know, you do not need an AdWords account for your domain to participate in GOSF. But you do need to have GA code placed on your website to setup events and goals to track performance through the GOSF campaign.

But it is also a possibility that Google Rep's may ask you to create an AdWords account before letting you participate in GOSF.

Also, for your information, the deadlines for GOSF have passed and Google will not be taking any last minute entries as there are many steps in setting this up at their end. You can try participating in the next one next year, Iguess.

All the best!

Cheers!

Hi Shubham,

You need to be in touch with a Google Rep beforehand ( somewhere around Oct 2014 would be a good time to start talks with them on this). Once you confirm you are going to participate in GOSF, you will need to fill up 2 forms back to back a few days apart, follow up with the rep on their requirements and once you have everything in place, you will officially be a part of the GOSF.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

Hi Vijay,

If you do not have a dedicated Google rep for your accounts or agency, you can just get in touch with Google on their help line and they will help you get in touch with the right rep for this.

Hope this Helps!
