I'm dropping the site that I first used to sign up for adsense. Does anyone know if this could present problems running adense on my other sites? All of the sites are squeeky clean.

In order to drop the site that you originally had approved you need to submit another site for approval. Once you do this and they accept this sit you will be fine. If they find that you you are not longer using on the original site that may cause a problem. I had this problem when I sold the original site to someone else and then they later applied for adsense with that site.

All ended up working out and I just had to have another site approved.

If you are selling that site, you may run into a problem. If you are still the owner, but using something else other than AdSense, I either wouldn't worry about it, or put AdSense on a single page.

Run into a problem if the new owner applies for AdSense. seogrrl said in her post above mine that she also had an issue with it, and had to apply for a new account as a result.

What about just using a 301 redirect to a newer site?

Well I am in the process of selling the site that I used to apply for AdSense account.

Do you think I should inform google about it?

When I sold the site that I originally used to sign up for Adsense, the new owner's applied for adsense as their site. Google checked the information for the owner of the domain and saw that they were the owner.

At this time I had enough in my account to get it FedEx'd/UPS delivery but they weren't doing that back then.

Google sent me an email that I didn't end up receiving and because I didn't get right back to them, they disabled my account.

Terrified, I of course contacted them. They notified me that the original site that I applied with must be under my control or I am responsible for asking for another one to be approved.

I then submitted another site to them after explaining that I didn't receive the email, they approved the new site and re-enabled my account.

They were very kind about the situation, I received my check, no problems. Just was really alarming as I didn't understand why my account was disabled.

If you are going to sell the original site that you used to apply, submit another site for approval prior to the sale and transfer of the domain.
