    Hi everyone --

    I just wanted to let you all know that if you use Referrals and have any feedback, make sure to check out this post on the AdSense blog:

    http://adsense.blogspot.com/2006/03/tell-us-your-feedback-on-referrals_07.html
    SEMrush
    This is a good opportunity to submit your requests, success stories, etc. Any feedback submitted will get passed along directly to the Referrals team.

    The only two things I would like to see (that aren't already there) are:

    • Channels for referrals

    • Ability to create text based links for them
    If Google is worried about compliance on the anchor text, you could even make it so the HTML still is generated on Google's end via JavaScript. For example users could pass something like this:

    google_anchor_text = 'Click here to signup for Google AdSense';
    Code (javascript):
    Then you guys are able to log all anchor text being used and ultimately are the ones generating the HTML.

    Anyone else have an issue where the Firefox referal button shows up fine in Firefox, but shows up as two text ads (or not at all) in IE? Seems to defeat the purpose :/

    Some new color schemes would be good, most of them clash with the majority of my sites, so I have never <gasp> used the referral buttons on a site.

    I've had very few conversions as well.

    I thought that I had the great idea of creating a few posts talking about SVG with some nifty demos in the hopes that It would get me a few conversions, but it didnt turn out the way I planned :/

    I don't use the referals anymore, had 0 conversion out of them.

    but a few more colour shemes would be grait for those who use them.
