As I mentioned in this thread, [webmasterworld.com...] , I also removed all adsense ads from a pandalized site, and saw some very positive effects shortly after. That was the only change I made to that site - because I was testing that specific thing. So it is possible there is a correlation, especially in light of the new adsense best practices guidelines. Now, my second test will be to take a second pandalized site, remove ONLY the above the fold adsense ads, and see what effect that has. I'll report in if/when I know.
