Since our announcement about retiring AdSense Referrals during the last week of August, we’ve noticed a number of questions in your blog comments and in our Help Forum. In this post, we’ll address some of the most frequently asked questions.
When you say ‘AdSense Referrals’ are being retired, does this only mean the program where I refer publishers to AdSense?
No, all referrals will be retired. This applies to referrals for AdWords advertisers, as well as for Google products.
What’s the deadline for generating referral conversions once the program has been retired?
In order for you to be credited for a conversion, the referred user must complete the required action by the last week of September 2008. However, please keep in mind that your referral units will no longer display after the last week of August.
