What is a "Featured Google Partner"?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi! I've seen many digital agencies refer to themselves as a "Featured" Google Partner but cannot for the life of me figure out what this means or how they received this title? How does a Google Partner turn into a "Featured" one?

 

I reached out to customer service, but they said they can't speak on the topic. The closest conclusion I've seen is when contributions to this forum from a company are plentiful and useful, Google chooses to write a Featured Post on them. Is that correct? Is that how you get the "Featured" status?

 

Thanks!

Hello Beverly,

There could be many ways a Partner would be featured, for example if they win a quarterly challenge, if they are written up in a press release, I think these are either gained by winning a quarterly agency contest or by having a PR company do a write up about the agency in question. Some agencies might be featured in published content and others might be featured in a live HOA. If you have any more details on this or a specific instance maybe we can dig in further but from my knowledge, featured just means they were showcased at one time or another and that could be from google or another third party source. I hope this helps...

Cheers...
