    Do search engines compare ad saturation vs content when indexing ?

    Would their be a benefit to hiding Ads (ie. If user agent == gbot hide ads, else show. ), especially on heavy ad saturated sites. I would think there would be an algorithm for this and thus hiding ads would be beneficial..

    Yet I'm just a noob, currently. Just curious about everyone's thoughts on it and if it's been tested by anyone..
    Thx

    I highly doubt it is possible. Don't you think Google can recognize It's own code?

    If you're using google ads, as verticall sad, they will find out anyway. If you're using ads from other networks, it can be done very easily, just lookup 'detect google bot' script/snippet or something like that.

    Ad serving per page... Its way too easy for Google to track you down. Find a higher ctr template and keep your account from being banned!
