    I was just about to login to my Adsense, and they display a new TERMS of AGREEMENT and introduce a new program: Google Referrals.

    Check it out! What do you think?

    I think its easy to refer someone..but for them to make $100 before you get anything? thats tough!

    Hi DPers,

    Have you guys noticed that Google have just added a referral program that gives you $100 every time one of your referrals makes $100!!!

    Sweet as a nut!!!

    I'm seeing huge revenue possibilities here!!!

    Yeh they have just added the referral program .... but they will only pay you $100 once the person you have reffered reaches the initial 100 USD ... thats it ...
    Google people are clever ;)

    Yes, I also do not see it.

    Firefox seems for me to perform better then inviting people to adsense.

    Such invitations seem for me to be a complete BS.

    But... there is one interesting way to earn a little more money. When you create a new serious resource, it is recommended to create new adsense account for it (do not tell that it is not allowed by TOS :) there ARE ways to do it), and you can simply earn 100$ more by inviting yourself to adsense :)

    Are you sure this is the case? I can't imagine Google will give this kind of amounts away for ''free''.

    Yeah and if he finally does you just get $100 once and that's it it seems. Don't think that's worth the hassle ( at least not for me)...

    It looks like the $100 only applies to the first $100 that your referral makes. So max $100 per referral, but hey, I'm not gonna complain.

    can u explain more about how to invite your self
    i know i only have only one account

    this is what google says about new refferal system


    Referrals offer you a new revenue opportunity while increasing your users' awareness of useful products and services. Adding a referral button to your website enables you to generate additional earnings by directing users to download or sign up for products such as AdSense.

    Click on any product sub-tab below to view specific revenue details for that product, or visit our FAQ for information about referral payment and feature details.

    To add a referral to your site, select a language, product, and referral button from the options below. Then, copy the code to the left of your selection and paste it into the HTML source of your site


    more explaining will be useful

    Well, it could take months for your referals to make $100 (as most of them probably only have small sites) and some will probably never reach them, so I don't think you can earn much with this program...

    I have the Firefox tab in my account. I pasted the code into my site, but it is not showing a Firefox referral button. It is showing as a wierd AdSense leaderboard: you can see it here at the bottom of the "AdSense Referral Program" post.

    Do you have wife, sister/brother, mother/father ...???

    Just register new adsense account for them. You will not violate TOS in such way, but you will feel more sequre from different accidents like your competitor's click-fraud on one of your smallest sites.

    Or for example you are a team of web professionals (like I am). And why not consider to register each new serious resource to another member of your team? It's a serious point to think about if you are planning to own more resources, becuse problems with one of the resources will not affect all your "online empire".

    About inviting yourself - hope you understand it now.
    You have account A. Simply create another adsense account B and invite that account B to adsense. When account B gains 100$, account A should receive 100$ too. Why not doing that? 100$ is not much, but it's better to have them then not to have :) two beer or not two beer

    The other great part about the referral program is the Firefox part. You make $1.00 for every firefox download you get through a referral button.

    I don't see any evidence that it's possible to get 1$ for every ff download. Would LOVE to promote that program. Maybe it's available only for a few selected webmasters?
