    Google Analytics Certification

    Career wise, is it worth it to get this certification as an SEO specialist? Is it possible to get the Analytics certification without Adwords experience?

    SEO is a pretty big deal these days, I'd say if you're in the right market for that sort of work, than it'd definitely be worth it. Honestly if your wanting to get an analytics certification, i would go ahead and get the adwords experience too even if its not required. It'd be worth it.

    Yes you can enroll in the Google Analytics Certification Program without Adwords experience because Google Adwords has its separate certification. Also, you can't get Google Analytics Certification as an SEO specialist because Analytics and SEO, both are separate.

    Yes you can definitely go for Google Analytics Certification regardless of any Google Adwords knowledge.
    Following resources might be useful:

    As far as its importance with SEO is considered, I think it is really difficult to conclude if it is worth or not, as it would totally depend on the requirement of the clients you will be going to handle in future.

    I was recently talking with an agency in DC and they said all of their agency employees who service customers are required to be GA certified - even copywriters etc. I think it's really becoming industry standard.

    Speaking about knowledge - exactly, but influence on a position is arguable. It isn't everywhere having certificates is a necessity - knowledge it the main thing.

    Google analytics certification will be a healthy thing for SEO guys but I give equal importance to Google webmaster tools. Is there any kind of certification offers from Google webmaster tools too ?
