firefox referrals

 8:28 pm on Dec 14, 2005 (gmt 0)

ok i see google says "up to $1.00" for referrals, but:

8 clicks, 1 conversion = $0.26.. thats just ridiculous.

google can keep the referral program and the button to themselves because i'm certainly not going to continue using it for 26 cents.

I never had even one click on it while I was running it. At least you got something.

sure, even if it was 1 cent, i still would of got something.

it's not worth it. 26 cents out of 80k page views isn't something worthwhile but a waste of space. i might as well replace it with a 125x125 button/ad.

13 clicks, ridiculously low CTR, no conversion. But I don't mind promoting Firefox, at least on pages that would have no ads that bring in money.

Whilst it may not pay well, I'd love to be able to advertise this in the UK.

I thought I read somewhere on G's website that Firefox referrals were now available to all Adsense publishers.

You can! It's now available internationally to all publishers.

I've been running the Firefox ads for a few days as a trial on one of my sites (fairly low traffic). So far, I've had four clicks and one conversion that payed the full dollar.

Not great, but I'm happy to promote Firefox and have done so for a long time before the referrals were available. So if I make a few extra dollars a month out of it, I'm quite happy.

I've yet to find a place on my site for the FF banners (though having them placed on a forum might be a possiblity).

The CTR does seem a bit low, especially as with modest traffic you wouldn't expect to refer that many people.

I suppose it's money for nothing for those who already promote FF as an alternative to IE. It does include the Google toolbar though, which I'm not a real fan of.

i have got two conversions for firefox referal and got paid $0.10 for each click. What happened to the whole dollar?

I have 10 Firefox referrals in the last month, all for $1.

I'm getting 0.1$ for firefox install.

I've seen 297 referrals and every single one has given me 25 cents, seems to be a standard rate but no, it isn't worth it, you would get more from a google ad display...i have had 3,250 clicks on the firefox banner and 297 referrals.

You can get up to $1 depending on the user's location.

I'm getting just 10 cents/installation, it's not much, but I guess I keep on promoting Firefox.
