Primarily based on the requirement that Google Companions have to fulfill (massive) minimal spends AND frequently improve them for “rewards”, I might say they simply need us to be those pushing ppc shoppers to spend extra.

It is a small listing of enormous companies, that truthfully aren’t essentially “higher” than every other skilled company. However they’re huge and have massive consumer heart spends. I am advantageous w/ Google stepping away from technique recommendation extra.

The factor is it’s exceedingly laborious to develop into a GMP reseller. There’s a raft of reqs and you must be licensed throughout the complete suite. These are usually not trivial certs however require prolonged, technical papers which are carefully scrutinized. 1/n
