    Google Analytics Certification

    You can become certified in Google Analytics by taking the Google Analytics Individual Qualification exam. The test costs $50.

    You can prepare for the exam by studying at Google's Conversion University. Studying the material here will help you squeeze more out of Google Analytics -- even if you have no interest in certification.

    If you're interested in preparing for the exam more quickly, a good resource is SEO Rabbit's Google Analytics Individual Qualification Test Notes. This is sort of the "Cliff Notes" version of the Google test prep material.

    Apparently, the certificate is useful to some companies that are using Google analytics. Those companies can hire someone who is qualified or have its own IT personnel take the course.

    The question is... is that really something Google supports?

    (notice the URL of the exam)

    I'd say the uses are:

    • Getting a job in this field
    • Selling consulting services in this field
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    $50 for an exam ?

    Man, how I wish my CCNA, MCSE and CCIE were that cheap lol

    Seriously....I can see some use for GA certifications, but frankly hands on experience beats a piece of paper any day.

    CCIE -- damn that's an expensive (and difficult) one!

    I did CCDP/CCNP, MSCE, CISSP, and about a dozen others.

    They helped my career along when I was doing IT consulting.

    Will,

    I was just curious, do you still do consulting?

    Was it specalized ? (in my case it was IT Security, Networks and other things as well)

    Your right yeah, CCIE is pricey, takes quite some time as well. Hard? Yeah it is hard even for a guy who had his first computer when he was 10 lol (A ZX Spectrum at the time....)
