    You can disable it via your account control panel.

    Some sites perform better without it if people are bidding lower to advertise on the site.

    Note: It can take up to 48 hours for your AdSense ads to update. There is no need to regenerate your AdSense code.

    I'm sure I read somewhere on DP that it also has a negative affect on some revenues but I can't remember where I read it or what the reasoning was. Can anyone shed any light?

    Ive removed it from my sites because i feel that $0.35 cents per 1000 impressions is a waste of my time & money. i would rather have the chance of a $1.00 click for every 1000 impressions.

    For me it just makes business sense. On the other hand... I love advertising on sites that still allow the "Advertise on this site" link. I have always been able to find 1000 impressions for under $0.45 on some major sites in my local area.

    My reasoning is that if a site that is 100x the size of mine can only get 45-50 cents per 1000 impressions, then my rate would have to be worse.

    I took it off because it was annoying and didn't blend well with the rest of my sites.

    I don't have enough traffic to use CPM, when i get loads of traffic i will re-enable it since it is CPM

    Now presumably you can't pick and choose which of your sites you disable/enable, right?

    no you can pick and choose which site it shows on , if you disable it this will affect all your sites.

    I think I'm with infonote on this one. Will disable until the traffic is enough to warrant CPM

    I leave it there to be honest, the more people I can get bidding to my site the better, the stakes will then be higher :D

    Some people see a change in the amount of clicks after it. Just a way of experimenting I guess.
