Microsoft Referrals for Windows Live Toolbar and OneCare

Google will end their AdSense Referrals program next month - this will even apply to software programs like Firefox and the Google Pack that convert fairly well on technology & software related websites.

If you are looking for alternatives to AdSense Referrals, try Microsoft Affiliate. This is much like the AdSense Referrals program though limited to two products - Windows Live Toolbar and OneCare, an anti-virus software from Microsoft.

Windows Live Toolbar is free and Microsoft will pay you $1 for every successful installation on a computer based in US. You can promote the Toolbar on your blog either through banner ads or regular text links.

In the case of Windows Live OneCare, you get paid $3 for every download completed on a computer that’s located either in Canada or US.

The difference between Amazon Affiliates and Microsoft Affiliates is that the former will pay you a commission per sale while Microsoft pays per unique download of the trial software that may or may not convert into a sale.
