    Correct me if I'm wrong here but I don't believe that those so called online awards for SEO, SMM, PPC etc even carry any weight

    For example, "get your diploma/certificate in digital marketing"

    For all I know, anyone can do it if you learn how to do it properly. I know most of you here probably learnt it all on your own (Like myself from reading and applying and of course testing)

    What's your take on these guys/ so called Universities offering these.

    Not really, unless you go to a college that advertises itself as prestige. I see stupid marketers all the time promoting Google Premiere partnership, which is whoever can refer a shit ton of buying adwords campaigns to them each month. Aslo they say its their "most trusted" award, which is bullshit. It maybe rare, but peopel lie about it all the time, period. Don't waste money on something you can learn for free, and won't help you win job positions.

    Exactly my point, I understand that many people however will think it's legit because they see the person is "qualified" in doing this because he/she has a certificate or some sort.

    It does add credibility to those that actually have it but it's just a money Making scheme IMO

    I see many courses in my country and even online courses which even promise diplomas.Most of the seo,marketing techniques are found freely on the net and no one will share real methods to rank tough competition as a course or diploma lol!

    It's here too in my country. people boasting about it on FB saying their got their diplomas in this.

    Its true they don't actually tell how to go about it I believe, probably just show them the basics or something.

    I know there's a few users on here who advertised saying they will give them some badge to add to their seo business website. Complete BS this is
