    Could be good for untargeted traffic and low converting sites. But as long as we can opt out, cos the last thing I want to see is irrelvant ad's on high CTR sites of mine!!

    This message is NOT directed at OP. Just a general informational post.

    What do you think they've been doing with Google Analytics you think it's just for you to look at... More like checking up on Adsense users. Also, remember how you can optin to create industry benchmarks... yeh google's mining that. Think if site A is similar to site B and one of them performs excessively well... say click fruad??? Let's go check. Not to mention user browser history and voting. Oh and remember that huge data center they are building... What did you think that was for? *cough* Expansive data mining.
