    just wondering if anyone else has had any problems with adsense....I just checked my earnings (I don't do this very often, so it's totally possible that I've done something wrong), and I noticed that they are waiting on some pin thing I never got, so I had them resend it to me, and then I noticed that there is no activity in my account since December 2008....when I get the pin and enter it will it suddenly show my earnings for the two and a half month gap or have I just lost out on those?

    Amazon's site keeps saying something about referrals....I know nothing about that and could find nothing to explain what it was, so I am quite confused.

    Overall, I'm just really confused, maybe one of you computer-types or one of the people that actually write on here for money can explain it to me, cuz I'm so not getting it.  I mean, I really don't care about the money, I write just to write, not to have a paycheck, but at the same time, those few extra dollars WOULD help right now!

    I think you have six months to enter the PIN, which they send after you make $10. Then they update your account including the "missing" time. I believe my PIN came in the mail.

    As far as Amazon, I think by referral they are talking about someone who makes a purchase from one of your ads.

    I just got my pin the other day. You also need to make sure you enter it correctly, otherwise after three incorrect entries they suspend your account.
