More Google Referral links



New category for Google Adsense – I talk about it enough here…. anyway. I’ve noticed today that they’ve expanded the referrals program. When it started, the deal was $1 for Mozilla Firefox (with Google toolbar) referrals and then the Google Adsense referral for which you earned $100 (If I recall correctly), when the signup earned their first $100. Then they rolled out AdWORDS referrals which was $20 when the referral spends their first $100….. Well, now they’ve gone and added a few more options….


There are now Google Pack *($2 per referral) and Picasa referrals ($1) per referral available….

(Referrals are new Windows users for the software (that have not previously downloaded Picasa or Google Pack).

The links range from a simple text link like this

Up to banner size links and the small rectangular graphics like this

It looks like there have been quite a few variations on the referral link designs for ALL the referral links, so you’ve got some variety to pick and choose to fit in to your site (or to contrast…)

Text links are currently for US users only.

It’s interesting to see that the page in adsense where you can choose referrals says….

Google AdSense program policies allow you to place one referral per product, for a total of up to four referrals, on any page.

However – there are five items that can be referred (firefox, adsense, adwords, google pack and picasa)… The terms that are linked only specify one referral link per product, so I think they may have a typo, it will be interesting to see if they limit the referral links per page….

Here’s the relevant segment of the policies text that was linked to from the above quote….

A single referral button per product may be placed on a page, in addition to the ad units, search boxes, and link units specified above. Referral buttons are considered to be ‘Google ads’ for purposes of these program policies.
