If you use AdWords, you might of got snail mail spamed with an ad from Google trying to get you to join AdSense, even if you already use AdSense. It includes an offer for a $25.00 AdWords credit when you join AdSense, IF you pass the requirements.

You apply for AdSense through there special link before March 31 and use the same email address and password you use for your AdWords account. If you get approved and earn over $50 in revenue through AdSense, you get a $25 AdWords credit.

Translation: For Google to get that $25.00 back, you have to generate $50.00 in AdSense earnings. There for AdSense pays us 50% of the AdWords bid.

Oh, please, Jesse. I can assure you there is no correlation whatsoever among the two. But I do bet if Google sees your post, it'll be good for a hearty chuckle!

As far as I know, google payouts are dynamic. I think it is based on your Ad Views/CTR/CPM.

I've always said it was 60% based on a $0.03 payout I saw on a $0.05 click.

Wrong assumption. It's not because you have to generate $50 to get $25 for free on AdWords that the payout percentage is 50%.

Topics in the past, for instance the one based on Google's financial results, suggested a payout percentage somewhere around 70% I think. I can't remeber the exact figure but it was surely above 50%. But it can also be that the payout percentage is dynamic..

It's just a cheap promotion. Even if it's true as Jess_Smith believes, I don't know how he/she came up with 50% AdSense payout.

Did they say they will change your adsense revenue into an adwords credit? or did they mean that if you happen to earn $50 in adsense they will happily apply $25 to your adwords account?

Isn't this promotion a sign that Google's having a harder time this quarter?

I doubt Google's having any problems but this may be a way to get more sites signed up in advance of Yahoo's launch of their competing service.

A promotion is never a sign of bad times, you're confusing it with a "going out of business sale".

A promotion is a sign of trying to lure more customers and thwart the competition.

It's just good business sense.

I signed up in March using my AdWords login and have already earned more than the $50.

I didn't know about the promotion - guess it's too late now.

I've always said it was 60% based on a $0.03 payout I saw on a $0.05 click.

That's where I think the split is. About 60 percent to 2/3s in favor of the publisher.

This is what you want, the split is from 60% to 70%. I will give you 2/3. No problem.

Assumption: Google won't spend a cent for this promotion. What it gets from your Adsense's $50 will be paid back to you in forms of promotion ($25 to AdWords). Thus,
Advertisers pay =$50(you)+$25(Google)=$75. You get 50/75=2/3 =67%.

Hope you all happy.

Is it a coincidence that jesse's post is number 666? I think not.

"suggested a payout percentage somewhere around 70% I think"

That's assuming dumbpricing doesn't screw around with you too much

Best I can tell from my data on hundreds of pages, compared to the cost of the top ads, I get 15% of what they charge.
