Google has introduced new pricing structures for both AdSense and AdWords. As per Adsense, you could previously earn $100 when your referred publisher earned his first $100 within 180 days. The new system on the other hand rewards $5 when your referred publisher earned only $5 in 180 days. However, the second tier earning is a cool $250. You get this commission when the referred publisher earns $100.
While mot many will lose the $5, the second commission is a truly rewarding incentive. In the same way commissions for AdWords referrals have been revised too. As per AdWords referrals, the pricing structure is as follows:
- When an advertiser you refer spends $5 within 90 days of sign-up (in addition to the $5 sign-up fee) you will be credited with $5.
- When that same advertiser spends $100 within 90 days of sign-up, you will be credited with an additional $40.
- If, in any 180 day period, you refer 20 advertisers who each spend more than $100 within 90 days of their respective sign-ups, you will be awarded a $600 bonus (bonus payments are limited to 1 per year).
