Change in Adsense policy for refferal ads

If you are non USA publisher displaying adsense referral advertisement on your website , you have reason to have anger on Adsense team.

Yesterday , the official adsense blog announced that they are going to make changes to Adsense referral programme policies.

Change No.1 : Change In Payment System
If Today, by clicking referral unit advertisement on your website someone joins the AdSense and makes $5 within 180 days you get a reward payment of $5. If he/she makes $100 within 180 days , then you will be rewarded payment of $250. Through Your website If 25 people who make $100 within a 180 day period you get a bonus payment of $2000

But Now Onwards ...
If you refer someone to AdSense who makes $100 within a 180 day period you get only $100.

Change No.2 Adsense Publishers outside of North America, Latin America, and Japan,will be retired from adsense referral programme.
I being being from India , can not continue adsense referral programme now onwards. Interesting to see that they are emphasizing the origin of publisher's country and not where the users come from to the website.

I never liked to display referral ads on my blogs , but those like Darren Rowse who are making huge money through adsense referral programme , will be at loss.
