AdSense Referrals Extends Referrals Time Limit to 180 Days

Posted By Darren Rowse 23rd of February 2006 Adsense 0 Comments

A month ago we reported that Adsense had silently changed the rules with their referral program making it so that anyone you refer to the program had to earn $100 in their first 90 days in the program for you to get your $100 commission.

Tom from Blogging Tom has just emailed me to say that he’s had confirmation from AdSense via email that this 90 day period has been extended to 180 days.

There is no change on the AdSense site in their policies yet as far as I can see – but the change makes sense as 90 days was quite a short period for most first time AdSense users.

Tom’s written about it on his blog at AdSense Referrals neu 180 Tage gültig (German).

  2. Hey Darren,

    As of 2/22/06 6:36 pm est U.S.

    AdSense still has the requirements at 90 days for a referral.

    Just thought you may like to know.


  3. Was Tom the only exception to this? I don’t think Google changed their policy yet.

  5. @Joe and mark: As i wrote to Darren, i can’t see the change in my AdSense-Account, there is still the 90 days limit. On the help-pages they do not even mention any limit. So this is still very confusing.
    But i got that mail yesterday, so i consider, they will change it. Hey, if i cannot trust an email from Google, who else shall i trust ;-)

  6. ..is there the same limit in France or Europe?

  7. I emailed AdSense team this afternoon,and got another confirmation reply.

    Yes,the referral time limit IS NOW 180 days.

    And they say this is for all the referrals,no matter Chinese,English or France.
