More Details on the New AdSense/AdWords Referral Payments – Two Tiered System

Posted By Darren Rowse 2nd of February 2007 Adsense 0 Comments

Here’s an update on the previous post about AdSense changing their AdSense/AdWords referral payment system. It’s looking like a promising two tiered system.

More reports are coming in now that different AdSense offices around the world are confirming changes in their referrals payments. Here’s the translation of a response from the Danish office:

“Thank you for the email. I’m happy to say that we’ve now changed the payment model for referrals so you’ll earn more from now on. You’ll, as it has happened, get $5 when a user you’ve signed up earns $5. When the user has earned $100 and complies with the general terms of service for referrals you’ll get additionally $250 on top of the $5 – total $255. This is brand new and we’re right now updating our help center with this information.”

Hat Tip to Stefan.

I’m yet to see this officially on any AdSense sites but it’s pretty good news for bloggers – the $5 for $5 is great because many publishers never get to $100 in the 180 days that AdSense allows – the $250 almost looks too good to be true and I’ll be interested to see if it is and if so what the time limit is on it.

Looking at my own stats I’d say that the payments are retrospective to some point – perhaps the last few weeks.
