    Is there any point to filtering ads that are not related to the content, even though it migh actually be ahigh paying ad?

    Yes there is a point to filtering ads even when they are "on topic". What many of us are discovering is that Google is dumping their low paying ads on content sites and when we filter those ads out our eCPM goes up because Google is forced to give us better ads.

    The best way to know if an ad is low paying is by looking at how spammy it looks, if it links to a "made for AdSense" type site and/or if it links to some kind of search/directory site. Also I have found big marketers like eBay and AOL have low payouts.

    Basically Google is trying to maximize their profits so they will keep the high paying ads on their search results as much as possible. At the same time they will fill as many of our ad slots as possible. So if we filter out the junk ads Google will dump those ads on someone else and give us some of the better ads they are holding back for themselves.
