  1. Darren is this only for english speaking bloggers?

  2. Luke Meshios says:

    I signed up like 1 day ago…

    how long does it take to confirm or what ever?

  3. Darren Rowse says:

    Stefan – not sure. I can’t see anything about what language it’s limited to.

    Luke – I don’t think it usually takes more than a day or two.

  4. _leech_ says:

    This sounds like a great offer, are there any catches?

  5. Luis says:

    So, is this equivalent to $50 for free?

    Well, I looked at some ebay auctions and $50 adwords credit is going for less than $5, granted the auction states you need to make a new account. Is this some kind of referral system?

  6. Renée says:

    This is strange!

    Google offered me $25, a week ago!

  7. Jaro says:

    It’s only for the new users. You’ll be given $40 for advertising, $10 goes for registration. It takes a bit to get confirmed because Google goes for each website manually I believe. No information about language limitation.

  8. Can you opt out of the adwords campaign at any time?

    Or are you placed into a contract?

  9. People are selling these coupons like crazy on Digitalpoint. I personally need coupons to add to my active account instead. I want to keep it going on the same account so that way I can keep tracking the same keywords over time instead of having to create new accounts just for more promo codes.

    I wonder how much Google is losing due to all these promo codes flying around.

  10. Rich Owings says:

    I’d like to do this, but not till after the holidays. Any idea how long the offer is good for?

  11. Darren Rowse says:

    I’m not sure on the answer to any of these questions friends. Best to approach AdWords directly :-)

  12. I’m going to be a little “glass is half empty” here. This is simply to entice new users with small budgets. Big companies with big budgets will burn that $50 in a few hours. All i’m going to say is be careful when you set your account up, don’t let that $50 run out to quick and then start burning your own cash. Small budget Adword users beware of the PPC ploys!

  13. I signed up before I finished reading the tips on that page. Can someone post them?

  14. Alex says:

    I can’t access the link above. It keeps giving a 404notfound error. Why?

  15. How can we tell if this offer is still valid?

  16. William says:


  17. web designer says:

This offer is good for first time LookSmart advertisers only and your daily budget must be set to $10 or higher, meaning you can only freeload for a maximum of 30 days.
