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

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.

    Thanks for the update, that explains why I got $5 today :)

  2. Allen.H says:

    I see this as a logical move. Few people get their first $100 in 180 days that almost no one’s promoting them anymore. Now the Adsense/Adwords promotion craze should be back and it should last longer.

  3. Armen says:

    Yeah, I agree with Allen. The chances of someone who hasn’t heard of Adsense and doesn’t know to go to Google directly to sign up, and then makes $100 in their first 6 months is going to be very rare, so at least now people have a chance of making $5 here and there.

    I was one of the lucky few by the looks who got 2 conversions totaling $10.00 today. Having received this payment makes me even more motivated to plug Adsense sign up referral buttons on my sites. If it is true I take my hat off to Google.

  5. Jean says:

    Although I had heard of adsense when I signed up – I really didn’t know what they were all about. I didn’t realize that I could have signed up through someone who would have then made a referral commission. I made over $100 in the first 2 months on my 3 blogs, so if I had signed up under someone they would have made the money. I wish I had know that before I signed up.

    Wow, great reasons to put up those AdSense referrals again.

  7. I agree jhay looks like I will need to go about putting them up on my blogs again.

    and this is really a great news!
    very few people really earn 100U$ in 180 days, at least in my country,
    so this is a really good way to promove adsense even more..

  1. Did Google change the AdSense referral payout structure?…

    I’m a bit confused: I’m seeing a different set of numbers for the referrals I’ve sent to Google for people who want to sign up for their AdSense program. I’ve never seen a $5 payout before, I thought that it was a flat $100 when they earned $100 on…
