In a major change to the AdSense referral commission program, Google has doubled the time limit for generating a referral commission from 90 days to 180 days. This change is retroactive. Nice touch. :)
From the Google AdSense blog:
Time limit for AdSense referrals earnings is now 180 days... Based on the feedback we heard [webmasterworld.com], we agreed that 90 days may not provide enough time for your referred publishers to complete earning $100. Therefore, we decided to double the window. This change is retroactive...

Question: What is ODP?
Also, I agree that 180 days still isn't enough. Adsense is very hard to make money with if you're just getting started and don't have a high-traffic site. While it is a step in the right direction, it is still a move by Google to make money off of many smaller sites without ever having to pay a referral fee to the publisher. I second wyweb.
