The idea of Google introducing pay per action ads has been talked about for sometime.

Today, Google has announced a new service called the Google Pay-Per-Action advertising.

Pay-per action works like many other pay per lead affiliate programs where you get paid when users completed certain action such as a lead, a sale or a page view after they clicked on the pay-per-action ad that appear on your site.

The referrals beta allows some flexibility where you can select matching products with your site’s content and you can customize your referral units to match the look and feel of your site.

However before you jump on the opportunity to sign up, the referrals beta test is currently only available to English–speaking publishers located in the United States. Of course they hope to open the test up for everyone soon.

Publishers will not receive payment for conversions that occur for users outside of the U.S unless explicitly enabled by the advertiser.
