Just to inform that I've received an envelope via mail at my address. It was an envelope with a 50 euro free ad to use with Google AdWords (entirely in greek). Anyone got an envelope like this?

As far as I know, these kind of offers, always hide "traps", so I said "No, thank you!". :roll:

I had one similar for my business.

IIRC, generally speaking if you create an account with them they will give you credit and then when the credit expires the start taking money from you on a per click bases

No I didn't use it as my website is more a point of contact and word of mouth is a far more effective means of promotion.

AdWords isn't worth the bother. It is a pay per search method of bumping the link to your website up to the top of the Google search results, or embedding it into the right-hand recommended links section of their pages.

I get these vouchers nearly every month from them and never used them as you would eat through the free credit in next to no time and then be facing a bill before you had chance to cancel the account. Not worth the hassle.

Good SEO on any website is a much better way to generate more visitors than trying to manipulate search results from the other end.

@JuvUK. There are always conditions with such vouchers, and when you really look into it nothing Google offer is really ever free. These are just designed to draw you in so they can collect more of your personal information.
