sealOne thing that’s harder to find on Google than it ought to be: A guide to Google-certified consultants who can help marketers navigate their way through the vagaries of the search engine.

That’s now resolved, via Google’s “Professional Search” page, which is just a tiny bit more complicated than a conventional search.

This makes plenty of sense, right? It might make even more sense if Google (GOOG) publicized the directory (which is in beta, of course). But so far, the company seems to be keeping quiet about it. I learned about the service via Search Engine Land, which got tipped by Google pro Tim Cohn.
