Google is so hypocritical. It pisses me off. I got that same message about adding more Adsense blocks on my site. I hate Google.
The most annoying thing is you get a message in your dashboard and an email from the sales team saying you haven't used enough Ad units; and you should put on more...
...and then you simultaneously get messages from the quality team about reducing them!
Still... Whoever said that Google's companies/subsidiaries talk to each other!
i am planning to kill off ALL Ads from my sites which used to equate to a max of $1500 a month. I wonder how much money they will loose by others killing their Ads too. See if you can't rank high with the Ads making you the most money then whats the point o havong them? The ads above the fold are the higher converters so G will definitely see a loss, but probably not enough for them to notice?
Don't shoot yourself in the foot!
But cross-monetise and multi-monetise via different methods. You can get CPA/lead-gen/Amazon/ClickBank variation etc all on a page/site if done strategically, so that you get multiple stabs at income.
I would personally NEVER rely on any form of Google income; you can make good money, but you're always under the shadow of them changing their minds.
It's not the greatest situation that the company you want to rank with organically and remain low-profile, is also the company that you have to wave a flag at to get paid advertising.
aaah... the wonders of Google!
luckily, i have monetized other sites as "real" offline businesses and i will do the same with the sites from where i am removing (in fact already have) adsense. The initial reason why they had adsense was lack of time to develop them into "proper" offline businesses so i added adsense to make them pay something as opposed to nothing at all.
I don't believe they can check too many sites manually, so if they rely on an algo - there is a way of changing the sequence of blocks within the page code, I'd have to check my notes...so basically the main article shows on the top in the code, but not on the actual page.
BTW - I don't use "adcents" but got penalized (I think) for too many CB ads above the fold
