Google AdWords Coupon Promotion Code

Monday, March 16, 2009 by

12/27/2010 Update: The Google AdWords Coupon code for HostGator Shared clients is now $100!

10/12/2009 Update: The Google AdWords Coupon code for HostGator Shared clients is now $50 (used to be $25)! Reseller coupons coming soon.

Google AdWord Logo

Ever run a Google search and notice the “sponsored listings” around the search results? Ever click one of those sponsored links? It’s likely that you have already visited a link that was advertised through the Google AdWords program and now HostGator is giving its shared web hosting customers the opportunity get started with Google AdWords by giving them $25 $50 $100 in free marketing credits*.

HostGator has partnered up with the Google AdWords pay-per-click (PPC) advertising program and is now offering an AdWords Coupon voucher good for $25 $50 $100 in credit with all Hatchling, Baby, and Business shared web hosting plans.

What is Google AdWords?

Google AdWords is a pay-per-click advertising program by Google. With AdWords, advertisers can promote their website’s products and services on’s search results in the “sponsored links” section. Quality ad text and relevant keyword buys will give you an edge over your competitors. And with AdWords, you can set your own budget and change your campaigns at any time – there are no commitments or spending requirements of any kind.

We at HostGator currently use Google AdWords for our own internal marketing efforts, and we truly believe that most businesses can benefit from the highly targeted traffic that this program can yield.

Great, how do I sign up?

New and old HostGator customers on qualifying plans can redeem the coupon code by visiting their HostGator control panel, navigating to the “Google AdWords Offer” link on the left hand side and clicking the “redeem now” link. It’s as simple as that.

If you don’t already have a HostGator web hosting account, take a look at our Shared Web Hosting plans, sign up today, and get started promoting your site!

    @ Ben
    We’re running this for our shared clients for now, but intend to make this available to our Resellers in the near future.

    I am impressed by the way HG is promoting its services and offering members even more facilities. I am signing up for the campaign.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi i am reseller of hostgator. My client’s also demanding Google AdWords. So it isn’t for Resellers?

    Great idea! I’d like it if it were available in the reseller accounts so that my clients could benefit from it.

    I have used several hosting providers and by far Hostgator has been the best in service and function.

    If you have an existing AdWords account, it looks like the AdWords coupon must be applied within 15 days of opening it.

    Google TOS: Promotional credit must be applied to a new AdWords account within 15 days of creating the account and is valid only for new Google AdWords customers with self-managed signup accounts.

    Hey, I was wondering if I could get a new promo code, I am a customer of Host Gator and have been for almost a year now. Please, email me back asap, thanks for the help.

    @Whitney : You should be able to get the AdWords Coupon code in your account’s cPanel. Keep in mind that it’s only valid if you have a new AdWords account (opened within 15 days). If you need help, please contact sales[@] w/ subject “ATTN: Chad”

    I received this promo in the mail. From the promo it’s unclear if it was sent by HostGator or by Google.

    I sincertainly hope that you did NOT share my information with Google.

    It took a long time to find a hosting company that doesn’t resell my personal information, and so far it looked like HostGator was the ticket; no email spam and no mail spam. (I’m using an email address that only HostGator has, so I know when I’m getting spam where it comes from)

    If HostGator did not share my info (and I’m still assuming that this is the case), then I have no complaints; as a matter of fact, I’d like to endorse you!

    So far nothing but trouble-free great service!

    @Roger: Glad you’re happy with the hosting service. You’re correct in assuming that HostGator did not sell or give out any of your account’s info to Google.

    @cathy: Currently the AdWords coupons are only good for U.S. and Canadian clients. I hope to extend this offer to other countries in the future. We have many clients in the Philippines, so this would hopefully be one of our targets.

    So if I open multiple shared hosting accounts, each account is eligible for one voucher or you only get one voucher overall?

    Hi,I just signed up for Hostgator Baby, as a newbie developer, and am just getting started with my first site.

    So far I’m very pleased with everything at Hostgator except that one of the perks I was promised – the Adwords voucher – can’t be used. I am in UK so was very disappointed to find this perk of using your service didn’t apply to me.

    Will you be offering Adword vouchers for UK anytime soon? I have not signed up for Adwords acc. yet and would rather wait until I can use your voucher if one is coming in the not too distant future for UK customers. Thanks, Cuailean

    Is there any chance of ever getting these vouchers for countries other than the USA? We are not from there but are still a customer.

    Thanks Ant

    For the coupon expiration, you’ll want to redeem it by 12/31/2009.

    As far as AdWords coupons & vouchers outside of Canada and the U.S. — I’ve contacted Google about this. If I can make it happen, I’ll update this blog post. Thanks!

    We used this promotion to start an account a few month ago. Since then we have had some questions, but absolutely can’t get them answered. After the first month your service rep will be unavailable to you. We spend $900/month with Google AdWords. After patiently trying “online help” I couldn’t get a question answered. I called the number they publish for help from a real person. That person told me he could only help set up a new account and nobody at Google could answer my question. This even though I was calling the published customer assistance number. HE THEN HUNG UP ON ME. I’m angry and hurt and seriously considering whether rewarding Google with over $10,000/year of our hard earned money is a wise business practice. Wow.

    Are clients from last year 2010 covered with this promo? I didn’t know about this and don’t see any redeem coupon on our control panel. Thanks for the heads up mate! I’ll also ask about it on hostgator
