Google Creates Affiliate Program For Referring New Advertisers or Publishers
In beta, Google is now offering a $20.00 US bounty for registered referral agents to send new Google AdWords advertisers or AdSense web site publishers to them. Payouts accrue once a referred advertiser spends at least $20.00 in AdWords or a referred publisher earns $75.00 in AdSense revenues. Once the Referring agent accrues at least $100.00 in earned revenues, Google will send the agent the referral payment.
From Google: The Google referral program (beta) is for businesses whose customers and visitors include small to medium-sized businesses, and who want to help those companies become more successful by running Google AdWords, or serving ads with Google AdSense. The program works by giving approved sites unique links to Google, then compensating the referring site for passing on a new AdWords advertiser or AdSense publisher.
