AdSense API is open for all developers.
[code.google.com...]

You can choose a revenue share percentage between 0 - 75% inclusive. This looks like an affiliate program from Google.

I wonder why would users want to register via third-party site and give away some percentage of their earnings? Maybe I understood it incorrectly?

Did anybody try it? Any feedback?

Why users sign with a third party?
AdSense API is designed for publisher sites that have regular content contributors, giving them a chance to share revenue. Actually this is not a bad thing for large sites where regular users post valuable content. That's my understanding of it.

I understood so because of following sentence (see link above):

After signing up for AdSense on your website, publishers are sent an email with a link that brings them to Google for completing the sign-in process...

i just got approved into that program last week and is aimed at publishers who have user generated content. the site publisher gets referals and a % of the ad money and the user/page publisher gets a %. Think how blogger works with adsense. or if you have a profile site, your users sign up for adsense via their account on your site, then on content they generate they share the revenue from ppc,cpm,search and referals with the site owner. the site owner gets a percentage of the ad money(owners choose that) and make the normal $5 and $250 adesne referalals as well. i havent had the chance to really dig into the api much so thats about all i can offer right now

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA oohohohohohohhohoHEHEHEHEHEHEHE

I absolutely can't believe this line from that page. What a hypocritical sentence from Google:

You are required to clearly display to your publishers the revenue share that you retain as well.

MUhahahahaahahahahahahahaha

Hey, where can I find that info on YOUR sign up page, G? How much are you sharing with me?

LOL

Hi Joel, the user generated content site that I run uses the AdSense API. We use it to execute ad revenue sharing with our users, without having to cut thousands of $1 checks with our members each month.

Overall, I'm happy with the program. The biggest downer (which I've raised repeatedly with G), is that site members that don't complete the sign up process with Google are shown PSAs on their pages. This happens a lot, and in these cases, both Google and my site are leaving money on the table.

I submitted an application few days back and got response from Google in 5 minutes saying I should follow the guidelines and complete the integration before approving my application.

After that I completed the inegration and re submitted the application 2 days back. Still waiting for respone from Google.

Are there any off-the-shelf cmses that would allow easy implementation of this? I could VERY easily implement this on my site to very good effect but I hate to spend the time/effort developing it if there's a CMS already out there that could be used.

You can probably find that in their earning reports, they're a public company.

What's with the "do no evil" foaming at the mouth people? Evil is willingly destroying other small businesses like microsoft or launching frivolous lawsuits like KinderStart. Doing no evil is not about accommodating every little whims and desires of everyone.

Sheesh.
