Several of my autoblog sites have been de-indexed. But only the ones with highly competitive keywords. I am using WPR and scraping Youtube videos. Not sure why the big keyword sites are completely gone and the niche sites are safe.

Is it possible that google knows that the micro niche sites are picking up lots of fringe adsense revenue? And that the big keywords sites will be replaced until hell freezes over?

I'm pretty sure there is not really a correlation between a site getting de-indexed and whether it has adsense or not.

I've seen sites with no adsense get de-indexed.

Actually the correlation in questions is high value keywords.

Google goes and manually checks each site that is displaying adsense. Its not an algorithm that is doing the checking, its a human.

Jeevs, the link you provided in the first one post is probably the most insightful, because it actually links to what the folks at G had to say:

And it appears that the main point of what they were saying was missed by most people:
This is not autoblogs that are being attacked its plain old plagiarism, which has always been against the adsense TOS. So, really whether you're plagiarizing in an automated way seems to be more of a side issue, the fact is they are going after those that steal intellectual property (i.e. pass it off as their own).

I've actually had several of my autoblogs go up in rankings based on UV's from the search engines, one by 1000% since Big G undertook this experiment, so not all autoblogs are dead. Just ones that weren't fitting what G was expecting...

I have about 150 autoblogs, all of the using WPR and all of them have adsense on them.
All of them has been working for the past 3 years and continue as we speak.

I have even received a google email with suggestion to optimize adsense placement on one of my sites, just the end of last month.

Below are the message from G
Code:
Google AdSense Team 	Google AdSense ad serving has been disabled to your site 	Apr 19, 2011
Optimization Team 	Increase your AdSense revenue on XXXXXXXXXX.com 	Apr 13, 2011
I constantly earn around \$500 - 600 \pm with these autoblogs and just collected my last payment last Saturday.

So not sure what are all the rumors flying about on autoblogs being banned from adsense. I think bans are done selectively on certain domains. For instance i have received a notice also last month that Google stopped servicing adsense on 1 of my domains because the adsense were displayed next to adult content.
