    Hi, I'm considering to sign up for G certification program and learn it by myself.
    My question is: once I signed up is there any time limit I have to learn everything and do the exam? or I can just learn and read it for how long I wish,
    untill the exam?


    thanks

    Mihre,

    If you are talking about the adwords certification exam, there is a time limit of 2 hours for 100 questions. You cannot pause the timer. In contrast, the Google Analtyics exam can be paused as often as you want and you have up to five days to complete the exam (at least when I took it last year).

    Hope that helps,

    This. Is there any real benefits to being adwords certified? Do you have to get recertified after a certain amount of time? or is it a one-time deal?

    Certifications are sometimes required post employment at an SEO/advertising company. If you get it and you don't plan on getting hired from a company then it's pretty much just bragging rights and not worth the $50.

    Hey - You will need to do the basic exam every 2 years and the other specific one every one year.

    I believe getting certified also allows you to use that title and mark on your website.
