You know all those great services that Google gladly provides to all of us, internet users for free? Stuff like Gmail, Google Maps, Picasa, Latitude, etc. Well they wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Google AdWords, which just turned 10. The Mountain View company’s flagship advertising product celebrated its birthday in style by dedicating an incredibly funny video to each of its clients (including a humble website not a million miles away from here).
Over the past year Google AdWords scored more than $23 billion of revenue, allowing the rest of the cool stuff to remain free. And while no one actually likes ads, they are probably the only way to get some quality product without having to pay for it, so it’s not all bad.
Now cutting to the chase and the promised video. We had a good laugh over it at the office and I suggest you follow the link and check it out for yourselves.
