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.

    is that so? thanks for the news!

    Here I am thinking and placing great importance on those referral buttons whenever I change my blog’s theme. Maybe I should remove those buttons.

    And why is it just $0.10 per successful conversion?

    I thought they said it would be a dollar?

    Could it be that Google’s AdSense is starting to loose some of it’s hype and magic?

    The max amount is $1.00 but it will depend on the country.

    work on getting traffic from the US so Google will pay you more for your Firefox downloads and ad clicks.

    i suggest you make real websites if you can, on different niches that will attract US traffic. dont stick to blogs. diversify.

    me, i have 16 websites working for me and right now working on my 17th. thats one of the secrets of making real money with Adsense. of course, you have to drive targeted traffic into them.
