2012 was quite eventful for the AdWords Top Contributors. The year started with moving to the new home for the Community, which became the online meeting place for small business owners and online marketing professionals. AdWords Top Contributors helped tens of thousands of businesses find ways to get the best results from AdWords and provided the Community with exclusive tips and tricks. In October 2012, some AdWords Top Contributors visited the Googleplex in California for the AdWords Communities Summit. During this two-day event, they had a chance to meet with AdWords support and product management teams, to learn from each other, and to provide feedback to Google’s teams.


We want to thank Top Contributors for their dedicated participation in the AdWords Community and for being the true advocates of online advertising. Our annual tradition is to recognize the most outstanding “above and beyond” efforts with the annual Top Contributors badge. The 2012 recipients for the annual AdWords Top Contributor badge (English) have just been announced! Drum-roll, and congratulations to:

In addition to the listed Top Contributors from the English Community, the badge was also granted to 25 other Top Contributors from our international AdWords Communities in French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish languages.

Congratulations! It’s time to enjoy the holidays, and look forward to a new exciting journey of 2013!
