I am happy to learn your RPM is now 2x what it was by fine tuning your site(s) to please Google.
Does this make you an Adsense Guru and if so, please answer your own question and tell us why YOU do not share your secrets for sucess?
I agree that Adsense is like SEO - I just happen to have a lot more success in monetizing my site since I dumped Adsense (and SEO) and focused on audience and advertisers (read direct sales).
My RPM is now 20x what it was when I limited myself to Adsense.
