Been contemplating placing some Google AdWords ads? The search giant is offering a carrot to attract Australian businesses: $75 of free advertising. Depending on the keywords you pick, $75 could vanish in a heartbeat or last all year. Google is pitching this as its own "small business stimulus", though my inner cynic thinks that there might be some pressure from Mountain View on the Australian operation to up advertiser numbers. Unfortunately the deal (which is open until the end of the financial year) only applies to new advertisers. In other words, you can't score an easy $75 of credit for your existing site (and you'll get called by an ad rep, so setting up a new account for an existing site probably won't work either).
