New Community Ranking System

Hi everyone,

Did you know that helping other community users and improving your own digital marketing skills can be fun and engaging, too?


In the Advertiser Community, we encourage sharing best practices and member-to-member collaboration in order to spread knowledge. Today, we are excited to announce some new features designed to make the Google Advertiser Community a more interactive place.



New Community Ranking System


In order to recognize the most active community members, we’ve created a new ranking system designed to reward members who regularly participate in the community and help others.


Starting today, you will see 7 levels in the community, each with 3 sublevels (✭ ☆ ☆, ✭ ✭ ☆ and ✭ ✭ ✭). New users will start out as “New Member” and then move to “Member”, “Visitor ✭ ☆ ☆,” “Visitor ✭ ✭ ☆,” “Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭,” “Follower ✭ ☆ ☆” and so on, until they have moved up through all levels.


To level up, you will need to earn a certain number of points by actively participating in the community. Each level has a minimum and maximum number of points that can be unlocked by answering questions, providing accepted solutions, sharing posts on social media, and many other activities.

Benefits of leveling up

Reaching a new level will give you a new badge and change your status, as well as make you eligible for other benefits in the future.


Where can I see my rank?

You can view your rank by looking in the top-left corner of the community page, below your profile photo and email address. Every time your level changes, you will get a notification in the Community (notification icon in the top-right corner), and an email, if you have those enabled.


New Email Templates


We’ve also added new templates for our email notifications. Say goodbye to plain text emails whenever another user likes or replies to your post!

We hope you enjoy these new features,

Your Community Managers
