This is SAD! Google is considering its users like M$ allways did: like idiots. How the geographical position of someone is affecting his website readers? Aren't we on the World *wide* web?? :(

Maybe European publishers were cheating :-) We all know how much SEO fellows live there...

The only reasonable comment I read about this:

<<The decision seems so intuitively dumb that it must be an algorithmic decision. The numbers must show that referrals from people who reside outside those areas are not as profitable for them. So they want to squeeze margins up a little and maybe consolidate in some areas.>>

Did anyone make any money from this anyway?

Doesn't everyone with a website already know about AdSense?

No, at least not in every country. Therefore I think this was one of the most profitable Google referrer products in smaller countries where the range of referral offers was not so wide.
