    Default Low traffic site on your AdSense account

    I've heard somewhere that showing ads on a low performing account can affect the performance of your more high powered sites within the same adsense account.

    How much truth is there on this? I can understand how a low paying ad slot on one site could affect a high paying ad slot on the same site, but an effect accross another site? I'd love to hear some feedback on this

    I can only speculate on this topic.

    However like ezman said:

So, if you change your ad placements and you see increased clicks and earnings for a few days (or longer / shorter depending on volume) and then see click remain consistent but earnings drop (a PPC drop), you are most likely being smart priced.[...]
    with this said I think that a low traffic site will not hurt your high traffic site
    unless it is of very poor quality or the clicks are poor quality.

    I for one don't see any impact, however I never tried to remove ADs on my
    low traffic sites. All ADs there are targeted as well and I think return high
    quality clicks.

    But if someone is willing to start an experiment that would be very interesting.

    Maybe I'll do one, I have to think about it.
