It is all about proving their worth to the Google that they are well aware of the services and procedures of the services provided by the Google. In return, the Google Issues a badge and practically add them to the Google Trust Worthy Service Providers and also give weightage to such companies.

Below are the criteria to qualify for the Google Partner Badge.

To those who knows the procedure might have noticed that the Google has made certain changes in the criteria since the release in 2013. The changes are made in Company Performance. Previously it was Best Practices which is now replaced with Company Performance. In this, the Google monitors the growth in terms of Financial as well as recognition base of the Client of which a Google Adwords campaign is running. If the Client results are not up to the mark and the Company fails to get its client the desired success and fails to understand the goals of the client then, company has a high chance of losing their partner Badge.
Thus, with this clients can rest assured that your money will be managed in a good manner if you choose a Google Partner.
