Go to Adsense Setup, then "Referrals", Look for "Google Products" then click "View Products".

Regarding the FireFox referral program, how do ya'll approach it?

I had it up on my site for a while, and at the time I had it coded so that the referral button would only show to non-FF users. I took it down a while ago because I didn't like my implementation of it and have had it down for months until today.

Now I setup a simple place in my header for the referral and because of the genre of my site am pretty blatant about my opinion that people should download it.

Have you guys found that a direct approach is more effective, or something more subtle?

Currently the caption next to the referral button reads something like: I use FireFox, and so should you. <Button>

We'll see how that converts. I used to get a referral every few days, but with any luck I'll now have more than that.

How is the referral working on your site?

Seeing as i just put it up..probably not very well :)

I thought the renewals had similiar sort of rules to adsense bits..in that you cant 'make' people click on your ads. Like "click here for our sponsors.." type stuff?

No, I'm pretty sure you can be more straightforward about the referrals as it's a CPA deal as opposed to a CPC. The advertiser isn't out anything for just a click.

I think it depends on your website. I found a website where I was downloading a software and then it recommended that this software works best with firefox!

I think he has a high CTR because it was very well set up!
