Check your Google Partner status

The "Partner status" page in your Google Partners account lets you know the current status of your Google Partner badge. Note that only admins of a Partners company profile can access the "Partner status" page. Based on your Partner status, you can find out:

  • Whether your company has earned the Google Partner badge or Premier Google Partner badge
  • If your company is at risk of losing its badge
  • What requirements your company needs to meet to either earn or keep the badge

Badge at risk

As mentioned in the status table above, your company could be at risk of losing its Partner status if it stops meeting one or more of the Partner requirements. You'll get a reasonable amount of time to make the changes and re-qualify for your badge.

Keep in mind that we may periodically update Partner qualifications, so you'll want to take note of any notifications about your Partner status that appear in your account.

Partner status lost

If your company isn't able to meet the Partner requirements, it will lose the following benefits:

  • Rights to use the Partner or Premier Google Partner badge
  • Company specializations
  • Listing on Google Partner Search
  • New leads generated from Google Partner Search
  • Rights to advertise Partner or Google Premier Partner status

Losing Partner status doesn't mean that your company is no longer a member of the Partners program.

Your company can continue to participate in the program and access other benefits of being a member, such as AdWords promotional offers, access to the "Insights" section, and access to Partners communities.

Note

Keep in mind that Google's third-party policies apply to companies that are members of the Partners program and those that have qualified for the Partner badge.
