I find it somewhat hard to believe that Google would punish sites that run AdSense.... it's that their bread and butter?
I have to think that google can make more money getting advertisers to buy the keywords directly rather than sharing the revenue with publishers. Everyone using adsense has given google all the data they need to make sure that advertisers ads are disPlayed on google for the long tail terms that were driving the publishers business. Since publishers depend so much on google for traffic they really made themselves obsolete.
