I think for a project, site in many different toppics. Is this is good idea. And what the smart pricing will do with that kind of sites.
Or it is better to separete some topics in different sites?

It's a bad idea unless you're Yahoo or the New York Times Co. The Web is already littered with broad bum shallow, keyword-driven made-for-AdSense sites that perform poorly for advertisers. So yes, smart pricing probably will limit your earnings.

the different topics will be at different sub directories(or subdomains) if that does matter.

We've been told by a pretty reliable source (Jenstar, who used to be a moderator here) that smart pricing is applied across a whole account. So the use of subdomains, subdirectories, etc. shouldn't be a factor.

The things that would seem most likely to affect smart pricing are:

1) The nature of the pages and whether Google's smartpricing algorithm thinks clicks are likely to convert.

2) The nature of the audience, which will determine whether clicks actually do convert.

Ok, it is applied to whole account, doesnt matter subdomains, subdirecories.
Is that mean when i have one site for sometopic, other for othertopic etc, the smart pricing will decrease earnings because it is applied on whole account?

The issue isn't the topic per se, but whether Google thinks the clicks are likely to convert.

Ah yes, the old guessing game.
