Subdomains on different topics, will it affect smart pricing?

I have several subdomains on different topics based on my single domain name.

Now Im thinking, if my subdomains are talking different topics, will it hurt the smart pricing value of my existing subdomains?

On the other hand, if all my subdomains are on similar topics, will it have better smart pricing value? As the domain is highly relevant to the topic.

There are theories about SP being account wide or site wide, either way, it's all the same in your case because you are talking about one sie.

The best thing for you is to use channels and monitor each topic's performance over a month, then pull the ads off the really bad performing sections and see how that affects your earnings.

Pretty sure Jensense blogged about it being account wide, rather than site wide, after a Google employee let slip that it worked that way? Not sure if this was confirmed by Goog?

Interesting. I'm building a new website at the moment. Might look into this.

yes I've checked Jensense and saw the news about it being account wide. I think it does not make sense, but if google is really doing so, we can doing nothing about it.
We never know but can only guess which site has poor conversion rate.

Here's my experience for what it's worth. 2 of my sites have numerous subdomains. Both of these sites have been with AS since the program began and have extremely stable numbers across the board. Site "A" has subdomains on topics that are closely related to each other. One of the subdomains on this site averages .45 per click with a page CPM of 69.00 and does not get much traffic. Another sumdomain on sita "A" averages .05 per click with a page CPM of 3.00, this subdomain gets a good deal of traffic and is responsible for about 50% of traffic to site A. When I completely removed all ads for a few months on the subdomain that averaged .05 cents per click, the other subdomains on site A did not start earning more per click. It did not effect the income of the other subdomains at all, even after a few months.
Another site, site "B" has a bunch of unrelated subdomains. One of the subdomains on this site averages 1.00 per click, while another subdomain on site B only gets about .05 per click. Once again, after completely removing the ads (for a few months) off the subdomain that averaged .05 cents, it did not effect the income of any of the other subdomains on site B. All 6 sumdomains on site B get an equal amount of traffic.
Hope that is the information your looking for.
