I'm experiencing the same problem. I can't find my site easily through adsense. I can't find the public channels.

I agree, it's horrible. Even if I search adwords by the exact name of my website, it shows about 15 of my "competitors" first, and then my site, even though my site has millions of page views per month, whereas some of the suggested sites are total spam/crap with no visitors.

As Adsense is practically a monopoly (especially if you are an international publisher) this is vitally important. I'm surprised this topic doesn't generate interest . . . In the new site targeted CPC era ONLY those sites that are visible in google's adwords selection tools are going to be making any money.
I really would like to know what Google uses to determine that. I'll throw one out for discussion:
(1) outbound links
I found I had good placement for a keyword that was found in one of my outbound links. The keyword was only found in that outbound link and nowhere else on the site.

Yes, that is really interesting. For example I entered "adsense" as keyword into "Describe topics" box. First few sites are 0k-10k :) So I'm almost sure traffic does not matter.

I suspect it has something to do with "adsense history" of the site. I mean CTR/eCPM.
Maybe sites with low eCPM are at the top, since site-targeted ads are to "monetize low performing pages".
By the way one of the sites from top 10 violates Google TOS by having 3 adsense blocks on login page, as well as reloading ads about every few minutes. Possibly having good CTR :)
