If the price to bid on a particular keyword on AdWords is only $0.01 , I pay 0.01 to get that visitor, locally from the same market. (by specifying locally geographic visitors only)
The current rate advertisers are paying(adsense rates) to have their ads on our site. Basically the fixed price that's been established to advertisers on our site for months now. The Adwords rate has little to do with the Adsense rate, many other factors involved. For instance, some might only bid for search traffic only... others (with more money to spare) might have their ads on our site from 'run of the network' type campaigns. Displaying just relevant content ads. And others might be running on Adsense through 3rd party advertisers.

true, I could see it lowering the CPM rate in the long haul. My hunch is Google has safeguards automatically in place to prevent this, but if someone tries it out let us know.
