I recently stopped by Darren Rowse’s blog just to see what he’s talking about and found out about a policy change that AdSense made recently. He was furious about it and he has every right to be so.
Below is an exerpt of his entry but you can read the whole post HERE:

AdSense Referrals Retired for Publishers outside of North America, Latin America and Japan.
If YOU as a publisher are outside of North America, Latin America, and Japan – youâ€™ll no longer be able to participate in the referral program.
Yes you hear me right, its about the location of you as a publisher that excludes you from participating in the AdSense referral system. Itâ€™s got nothing to do with your audienceâ€™s location, the topic you write about, the quality of your blog or any other factor – itâ€™s about where you blog from.
Iâ€™m not privy to the reasoning for this – they simply say â€˜Weâ€™ve found that this referral product has not performed as well as we had hoped in these regionsâ€™ – but in my mind this is stupidity to the ultimate degree.
