Default Adsense Black List

From AdSenseBlackList:

This site will teach you how to seek, recognize and filter low paying google ads which link to MFA (Made for Adsense) sites AND we will provide you with tools that will help you to substantly increase your AdSense revenue, all for free. Why would you seatle on taking $0.01 when you can boost it over $0.50 per click and double or triple your earnings ?!

If you’re webmaster running AdSense on your own website, you’ve probably seen google ads like “We have found 4 best products for …”, or “Best resources on net for …”. Well in most cases, these advertisers pay you only between $0.01 to $0.03 per click, depending on your site PR (Page Rank), traffic and page views.

Filtering these kind of ads is simply not good enough. We have to eliminate their existance by providing high quality list of these sites which can be freely and easily used and applied by any AdSense Publisher acessing this web site, all for the good of internet’s quality and your higher revenue of course.

I thought Google AdSense was supposed to automatically select the best-paying ads. The AdSenseBlackList claims that people using them gained 5-50% (!) revenue, though.

that isn't enterily true...
in my view the ads apearing on the site depends on your traffic, your content, your page rank and most of all the quality of the traffic.

If anyone tries this, let me know what your results are ... I am somewhat tempted to try it but ... I am a bit skeptical. The assumption made is MFA = lower eCPM for you ... which is not necessarily true.

Edit: Also, the fact that the site lists an article telling you how to "combine" AdSense & AdWords to make money is rather suspect ... that's exactly what they say they're trying to prevent!

"existance"? "...substantly increase"? "Why would you seatle"?

Typically, if they can't spell the easy words on their own home page, they aren't worth fooling with. This is one I'd stay away from.

Default blacklist test

I looked the site over and since it seemed fairly innoculous I added the list of sites it generated to my competitive ad filter at adsense.

There are so many variables that this test is not scientifically valid but I'm reporting back since someone asked for results.

After a week my ecpm increased 13.6% and my daily avg increased 12.7%

There are always ways to trick the adsense spiders into thinking you have content on a certain subject when you do not. Of course this may involve actually putting copy on your pages unrelated to your pages.

There are also ways to remove sites that don't preform which is a good part of what this is doing.

The results of either change can be a bad user experience, a bad SE rank or, when well done, minor fine tuning.

Keep in mind that Google themselves offers a tool to "direct" the ads called google_hints which is available to select publishers. Even they know that some pages, like a photo gallery, are unlikely to show the proper ads. I have seen substantial increases in click rates and payouts from using that tag on certain sites so I'm sure this could work.

The question you always have to ask yourself is this right for you, and if it isn't 100% legitimate, are you willing to take a risk?

How could it not be 100% legitimate? I mean, do publishers not have the right to exclude any AdSense advertiser, for any reason or no reason?

demae,
In this case you are completely right -- I was assuming (perhaps incorrectly so) that people may be looking to go beyond just this tool in optimizing their adsense keywords as that is often a subject brought up.

There is certainly nothing wrong with excluding any site for any reason that I can think of. Of course if you are in a niche with few advertisers this is really not going to help at all -- only in those cases where you can remove low bidders and be left with high ones does it help to filter anyone out.
