Free Google AdWords promotional code coupon

It’s Freebie Tuesday @ hillelstoler.com again, and I’m giving away five 200 NIS (that’s about 50 USD) worth Google AdWords coupons for free! All I ask in return is a link from your blog.

UPDATE (January 03, 2009): There are some new coupons here!

UPDATE (August 02, 2009): The coupon giveaway has ended. Thanks ya’ll!

To get your free promotional code Click Here and request a coupon – I will email it to you within 24h time!

[Hillel & Google] Relationship status: It's complicated.

You can use these coupons to start up your Google advertising campaign and to pay the Google AdWords registration fees (at least at google.co.il where such fees apply). Please note that the promotional code is intended for NEW AdWords accounts only and needs to be applied when you create your account (or a short time afterwards).

How to get the free Google AdWords Coupun?

Step 1: Make sure that you’re new to Google AdWords, or that your account is only a few days old.

Step 2: Do at least one of the following: Put hillelstoler.wordpress.com in your blogroll or link to this post from your blog and help me spread the word about the free coupons.

Step 3: Just ask for it!
I will send your promotional code ASAP (usually within less than 24h).

A note for Wiz clients & GetSocial users
If you’re an active Wiz client or if you’ve ever made a donation for GetSocial (prior to September 22, 2009) you are invited to contact me and receive your free coupon without the need to link here.

A blank Google AdWords coupon with YOUR name on it!

(Some of) the fine print:
1. You must be new to Google AdWords. This means that your account must be 14 days old or less (and that’s the 3rd time I’ve said that already!).

2. You must use the coupon you get. You can’t pass it to someone else, keep it unused, publish it online, etc.

3. After you’ve used up the coupon, you must manually stop your AdWords campaign if you wish to discontinue it.

At this point I would like to make it clear that I receive no profit out of these coupons or from Google. It’s a strictly humanitarian act :)

GetSocial – Social Bookmarking for WordPress.com

GetSocial is made especially for WordPress.com bloggers. It automatically generates a (specially designed) social bookmarking toolbar for each one of your posts. This is a 100% scriptless way to create social bookmarking links, which makes it a perfect solution for wordpress.com users. It is also based on a 3 step wizard interface which is very friendly and easy to use. Oh, and it’s 100% free!

Download GetSocial now:

Download GetSocial - it's free!

Great, but what is a Social Bookmarking toolbar anyway?
Well, here are some fine examples (made with GetSocial v1.00) – Try it!

How does it work?
After you download GetSocial (which is 100% Virus/Adware/Whatever free!), Extract and run GetSocial.exe (No Installation is needed, but you will need to have Microsoft .net framework 2.0 installed: nothing a quick visit to Windows Update won’t solve).

You can then select between adding Social Bookmarks to a post or an AddThis.com button to your blog (more on that later). You will need to enter a permalink to your post (which is the web address of your post) and the title of your post.

Click next and select your preferred type of Social Networking toolbar design (there are four of them!), after you get your code, paste it to your post (while in HTML Edit mode) and that’s it! Sounds difficult? Try it, and see for yourself just how easy it is! :)

UPDATE (July 23, 2008): Teck, from the Teck~Line blog, wrote a post about how to use GetSocial here.

UPDATE (August 24, 2008): Lee Aase, from Social Media University Global (SMUG), made a YouTube movie about using GetSocialwatch it!

Free software?
GetSocial is a donationware, which means you can use (and share) it for free for as long as you like (you can’t sell it or tell people you’ve made it yourself though). It is neither limited nor crippled in any way. If you use/like it, consider donating 5.00 USD (you can do it!) to the author of the software (that’s me!) Thanks :)

Make a donation with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure.

What did you say about AddThis.com earlier?
GetSocial lets you create an AddThis.com button for your blog as a whole. It is a little known fact, but when you put an AddThis.com button in your blog’s sidebar (even if you selected ‘WordPress’ when you generated the code on their website) your button will not link to your blog, instead it will link to the AddThis.com website! This is due to scripting limitations on wordpress.com that removes important parts of the script. I have found this error on every single AddThis.com button I’ve seen on wordpress.com so far!

UPDATE (May 19, 2008): Netty Gritty wrote a good article about the AddThis.com problem here.

How to check if my AddThis.com button links to my blog?
It’s very simple really: click it, and on the Bookmark & Share page click on ‘Favorites’ (See photo). This will add a website to your browsers favorites – if it’s your blog then everything is okay, but if it adds AddThis.com then everyone who ever used it promoted AddThis.com, and not your blog!

Does your AddThis.com button really bookmarks your blog?

The good news: GetSocial can fix this for you in no time :)

What else?
Enjoy GetSocial!

Oh, and one more thing, GetSocial is not affiliated in any way with WordPress.com, AddThis.com or any of the Social Bookmarking providers.

Download GetSocial.zip here.

UPDATE (June 02, 2008): I’ve received some requests regarding a spacing/border issue in some WordPress.com themes. A new version, GetSocial 1.01, resolves these issues. Every download link in this post has been set to point to the most recent version of GetSocial. Scope this.

UPDATE (October 21, 2009): There is a new cross-platform on-line version of GetSocial. No download is needed, and it will work with every OS (Yes, it will work on a Mac). It’s called GetSocial Live, and it’s fast, easy to use and free! GetSocial Live is always up to date and currently features the latest Twitter and Yahoo Buzz buttons, read all about it here.
