Google AdSense Certified Partner Program

Google AdSense Certified Partner Program

The Google AdSense Certified Publisher program will be sunset by Google on December 31, 2015.  Google’s Certified Publishing Partner program is now Google’s new publisher solution. These partners are trained experts on not only Google AdSense, but also DoubleClick Ad Exchange, and DoubleClick for Publishers.

You can continue to operate your AdSense account with your current AdSense Partner, who was previously certified under the Google AdSense Certified Partner (GASCP) program.

If you are looking for a new partner, see our Certified Publisher Partner list for partners with the most up-to-date certification Google offers publishing partners.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I still work with my current partner who was a part of the Google AdSense Certified Partner Program?

Yes. You can still work with your current AdSense Partner. If they were a part of the GASCP program, their certification will no longer be a part of an active program. They will only be certified in AdSense, and not the suite of Google publishing solutions that could better serve you.

Many of our Google AdSense Certified Partners have recently been certified for the new program. Those that have not, are in transition to getting their certifications to include DoubleClick Ad Exchange and DoubleClick for Publishers over the coming months. Check with your partner to see if they are working on their new certification.

How can I find someone to help me manage my AdSense account?

You can find our list of trusted partners in the Certified Publisher Partner program along with a brief description of their business and contact details to reach out to them here: Find a Partner

How do I verify the certification status of an individual or company?

After January 1, 2016, the Google AdSense Certified badges will not longer be recognized as the current Certified Publisher Partner badge.

Good until December 31, 2015:

How much does it cost to work with a Certified Publisher Partner?

Certified Publisher Partners have different charging models. You should talk to the individual Certified Partner about cost and pricing. You can connect with them on the Certified Publishing Partner site.

What does the “Managed account” label in my account mean?

When you see a “Managed account” label displayed in your AdSense account, it means that you’ve linked your account to a Certified Partner’s account. The label is just there to remind you that you’ve agreed to give a Certified Partner access to your account for the purposes of maintenance and optimization.

In accordance with the Terms and Conditions of MCM Usage, Partners must ensure that: “any client who has their AdSense account linked to Yours (each a “Publisher”) has given You its express and affirmative consent to do so".

How can I sign up to be a Certified Partner?

We are no longer accepting partners into the Google AdSense Certified Partner (GASCP) program, as this program will be sunset on December 31, 2015.

In order to better service our publishers and partners, we've created the new product-agnostic Certified Publisher Partner program, which includes AdSense, AdExchange and DoubleClick for Publishers with strict eligibility criteria. These criteria will help you grow your revenue, build trust and meet your publishers’ needs — beneficial to you, your publishers and Google.

For service providers interested in this program, we’ve put together comprehensive training and testing resources that cover all aspects of AdSense, AdExchange and DoubleClick for Publishers. If you meet our requirements for Certified Publishing Partners, please let us know your interest via this form. Our team will evaluate your application and reach out to you.
