I noticed today that the Google Pack is showing for me to promote in the referrals section whereby it was never available before in the UK.

If the creatives to promote it were better I would have considered it but like all other refferal creatives, IMO, they aren't very good. The use of the word "free" would go a long way to getting a better ctr & conversions.

From google adsense :

* A Google Pack referral is counted when a Windows user from the United States, who has not previously installed Google Pack, downloads and installs the program for the first time.

Some buttons in French have the word "free".

Chaaban, that's exactly what I'm seeing.

Maybe Google hasn't updated their Google Pack Pages yet.

I think jchampliaud has it right.

The pack is available for me to put on my site and for downloading in Canada (in French) but isn't even mentionned in the help page when I click to the link beside the asterisk.

Sorry for any confusion!

The blog post ( [adsense.blogspot.com...] ) is accurate -- Google Pack is now available internationally.

Our referrals team updated all of our Help Center references to Pack referrals, but if by some chance they missed one, please let me know. You may also need to clear your cache to see the correct information.

Happy Pack-ing,

-ASA

ASA, it's a shame google being the only referal program in the world not informing the rates and only mentioning the best paying country rate.
Up to $1, Up to $2? Not clear, not serious, disgusting seeing $0.10 to realize that this is the rate for that other country.

Why don't you show country rates?

ASA,
I read the How much will I earn from referrals? [google.com] document in the Adsense help center.
It says this regarding Firefox:
Your referral must be a Windows user, who has not previously installed Firefox

Regarding Picasa it is also specific:
The user you refer must be using Windows and not have previously installed Picasa

The policy of the Pack is not clear.
If a user with Firefox installs the pack, do I get paid for the Picasa or not at all?
Is it a payment per pack or per product in the pack?

The Google Pack still isn't mentioned in the French help page and the configuration page says a referal is when a user from the United States installs it.

What does this means? We don't get paid for users outside the US?

The requirment on the landing page also says Firefox 1.0 is needed. How can that be?

I don't see the Google Pack option in the control panel.
I've received an e-mail about this, but no option!
