Scraped ones

All of them :-(

Sites that have no intrinsic value to the user, because:

1) Smart pricing is likely to catch up with them, and...

2) Even if that doesn't happen, improvements in search algorithms probably will.

I've got a few adsense sites, but my main one is rock solid. Only varies by about +/- 10%/month.

What's my secret? It's easy.

The site is almost 11 years old, number 2 in google for a highly competitive term (number 1 is the manufacturer, I fantasise about knocking them off the top spot but I gotta be realistic), has 100's of GENUINELY organic links (I've never "acquired" a link), and the users absolutely love it, the session length time on the site is almost scary. Virtually 0 maintenance (I update it maybe once a year).

1) Websites with a limited number of advertisers
2) scrapers

Any sites, though sites of lower quality (e.g. scraper) may be likely to be hit more than quality sites. If you depend on search engines for 60% of your traffic and more -- and that search engine drops you like a hot potato (never mind that your site is clean and white hat and all), you can see your income diminish considerably. Even if your niche has lots of advertisers competing for a space in your site, if your traffic drops by 70%, you're a goner.

So my advice is to enjoy it while you can -- and SAVE!

Sites that are about to be banned from Adsense.

Doesn't get more sudden than that.

Sites that one would not be proud to own up to in front of one's mother. :)

Sites that look promising, and therefore attract competitors.

Pardon my ignorance but exactly what is a 'scraper' site? I've seen this term bandied about frequently but I still only have a vague idea what it means.

I don't even understand the question of this topic.
