90 day Limit on AdSense Referrals
I didn’t notice that Google AdSense has quietly updated their AdSense Referral program with a 90 day limit. Usually, whenever Google updates or changes their program policy, you’d get a notice of it the next time you login to your AdSense account.
This is what you’ll see at the bottom of your AdSense referral code page.
An AdSense referral is counted when a publisher, who has never previously enrolled in AdSense, creates an account and earns at least $100.00 within 90 days of sign-up. The referred publisher must be eligible for payment to qualify as a successful referral.
AdSense publishers have been having a hard time converting their referrals without the 90 day limit, how much more if they put in a cap?
I have over a dozen AdSense referrals and a few Firefox referrals since this started and so far I have only seen on successful convertion. That’s a $0.10 revenue for a single Firefox+Google Toolbar download. *sheesh* Might as well remove those buttons.
