    It wont be straight away, they update the accounts in blocks to make sure every thing is working. From the looks of things, there are plenty of products to choose from.

    Hopefully I might get more click thrus.

    So... does this mean it's out of the "beta" stage and rolling out to all adsense publishers?

    EDIT:
    I need to read the adsense blog more often lol.

    It's not active for me yet. It would be interesting to see what products are on offer and how they'll perform.

    It's better but far from perfect. I see no benefit to using this over CPC or CPM. If/when they add image or interactive links (similar to CJ) then I might consider using it. Until then they trail far behind.

    It's activated in my account, and I've installed test code on a couple sites. I find the ad selection interface a little complicated. You have the option of selecting referral ads by individual advertiser/product or just using keyword matches. I'm trying both.

    The keyword matches aren't precise, in that some off-topic products are showing up in some of the keywords I've entered. But the keyword path gives you the option of letting Google choose the best-performing ads, which might make this more low-maintenance than CJ or other affiliate programs.

    "If you endorse the product that you are referring, feel free to let your users know."

    does this meant that for referral ads you can now say things like:

    "click here ->"
    "visit this sponsor"
    "take advantage of this offer below:"

    Yes, it does. However I think they actually want you to elaborate a bit more on the offers in question... Something like"Get great software for webmasters. The software does this and that. Check it out now!"

    The only advantage would be if a large majority of advertisers pay per lead and not per sale plus they don't abuse the system by paying something like $0.10 per newsletter signup when infact they are wanting to get that signup plus also about 10 - 20 extra visitors to their site.

    If there are some good pay per lead programs that pay $5 - $20 per lead for a quick and easy signup, then in return it could yield better results than CPC, but somehow I have a few doubts until I see whats actually on there.
