AdSense Referral Program Retires, Here Comes Google Affiliate Network

AdSense has retired their referral program and launch the new Google Affiliate Network. Actually, Google Affiliate Network is not a new idea online and it is the rebranded version of DoubleClick Performics Affiliate which Google acquired in March 2008.

Google AdSense is slowly closing down their AdSense for Referrals. So, if you are still using any AdSense for Referrals on your blog, you should remove them from your blog. You might consider using AdSense for Contents or link units to replace the AdSense for Referrals if you are no having 3 AdSense for Contents or 3 link units on your blog.

I have removed the AdSense for Referrals button on my blog and I replace them with wide skyscraper AdSense for Contents. So, if you are still using AdSense for Referrals on your blog, you need to remove them before the last week of August because AdSense for Referrals will be retiring during the last week of August.

Google Affiliate Network

Personally, I think that Google AdSense has made the money making opportunity from AdSense tougher for bloggers and webmasters. The new Google Affiliate Network are mainly targeting sites with large US based traffic.

The Google Affiliate Network is not a good money making program for most bloggers because it requires product sales in order to generate commission. This means that if you are unable to direct US traffic and generate sales, you will not be able to make money at all.

People are hardly clicking at AdSense Ads to help AdSense Publishers make money, now we need to persuade people to take out money from their pocket to buy stuff so that we could earn commission from sales. Do you think it is possible for us to make money? I don't think so.
