    The AdSense referral program is what is being shut down.

    "Due to reasons unknown, the AdSense referral program is being retired at the end of August. Its unclear how popular the referral program actually was, but its safe to assume it wasnt a huge money-maker for Google. In their official announcement, they alluded to their reasoning behind retiring the program...

    In the announcement, they also suggest a possible replacement for your AdSense referral program called the Google Affiliate Network (formerly DoubleClick Performics). The two programs are almost functionally the same advertisers pay-per-action and publishers get a portion of it. It doesnt make sense to support two separate programs that seem to compete, and since they paid billions of dollars for DoubleClick, they might as well use some of their technology going forward."

    no. just the referral program. It was to pay cash for sign-ups. Only very large sites could join at first. By the time they let the rest of us in it was too late to make much money at it.

    If adsense were ever to shut down so would the internet.

    How I understand it...Google bought Performics and will use it for their referal program.
