    Use Adwords for free?!?
    No, no.. no advertising, I just found this funny.

    When I signed up with Adwords on Sunday, I saw it asking for a promo code.. so I searched google to see what that was about, and found a bunch of sponsored links for free adwords! One said you could put in bids of 5,000, since you don't have to pay!!

    I found it funny, because google seems like it can get pretty picky at times with it's "slap" and keywords.. but allows ads that use google's own product to scam people?!

    yeah, lots of ads for 'free adwords'!

    Along with that, theres a different forum where people are always trading & selling adwords vouchers at a discount.

    But I don't think they work for a established (not new) acct. & I don't think people are supposed to have more than 1 adwords acct.

    its rather the other way around
    Most of the promotion codes work only for new account (which is a account which is less than 14 days old)
    and One adword account can use only 1 promotion code for its lifetime

    I actually came across some of those trading forums, and there were some worth I think 100 dollars of Ad spending or such, and people buy and sell those at discounts.

    I don't have any current adword certificates that I can freely give away, but I do have Yahoo & MSN AdCenter certificates I can post for "new account setups".

    Microsoft AdCenter: $50 credit (requires $5 credit card charge to open account)
    http://www.designerwiz.com/cgi-bin/c...soft-Ad-Center

    Yahoo Search Marketing: $50 credit (requires credit card to open account)
    http://www.designerwiz.com/cgi-bin/c...-Pay-Per-Click

    Enjoy!

    PS. Someone reported these certificates as affiliate links. These are not aff links, these are certificates provided by agents to give away to our hosted accounts ... I'm just giving ABW'rs the certificates w/out a hosting plan required.

    Be advised that you have to keep a minimum balance in your Yahoo account (was $30 last time I wasted my money with them... erm... I mean, the last time I used their services)
