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...

As a submission to the ODP can, and often does, take up to 180 days to be listed, I'd say that's uh... very generous of them.

That was good news, and a good indication of how Google listens and acts quickly, also the difference this forum can make.

I think it's pretty interesting that they mentioned webmasterworld as a source for their feedback.

We often read questions as to whether the Adsense team is listening or reading. This seems to point towards "yes they are".

I think it's pretty obvious that they listen.. it's a testimony to webmasterworld's clout, among other things.

180 days isn't enough though. It should be a full year.

I just had my first AdSense sign up yesterday. I hope the person can make $100 in six months.

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.
