Google is giving the small medium enterprises a platform called as Google ADwords to showcase their business to the relevant search results to their business. The SMBs have been a huge source of income to Google from the very first day they introduced the Google Adwords. Now its time for Google to create a platform where it gives opportunities for all the SMEs to grow their business using Google.

Surprisingly among this crowd only 6 to 8% businesses have a website as per the survey. This is a very small amount and has a huge potential to grow. We at Technary got a great chance to attend this event where I was live tweeting about it.
