No, you apply again after you've reached the minimum.

And that's a long way away for me. I've even bought sites with quality content and traffic in the attempt to get to premier partner. But it looks like I need to spend some more.

But, yes, I think you need to reapply. It does not automatically happen. Also, they may not necessarily accept you as a PP just because you are at 20M. They manually review the site/network first.

Macro,

I wonder if it is 20 million for your network or it has to be one site? Here is what the terms say "If your site receives more than 5 million search queries or 20 million content page views a month, you may qualify for AdSense premium service."

Also when you apply for PP status the form asks for the URL of your site.

novice, for various reasons I believe it's "network" though I understand them not using the term on their site.

AFAIK, there is no claim to financial advantage. But, there are other good reasons including the reasoning I used in this thread [webmasterworld.com].

If there is some fraudulent activity on my site as a PP I may get a Google rep to work with me to identify the source and plug the hole. As a small time publisher it may be less trouble for them to just boot me out.

Yes, but if you've got 20,000,000 page views a month and you're generating significant revenue for them, it probably doesn't matter whether you've requested "Premium Partner" status. :-)

Maybe not. Maybe they have different flags and stop points if you are a PP. Remember, we are talking about the people who leave a lot to machines/software/algos.

And, who knows, there may be other advantages, including financial. You may qualify for animated gif ads where others don't. There may be ad campaigns in the future which the advertiser insists are run only on pre-vetted sites. There may be others.

That may well occur, but status as a premium partner wouldn't necessarily come into play. Indeed, if you visit the AdWords forum, you'll see complaints from time to time about premium-partner traffic that sucks up advertisers' budgets without converting (which stands to reason, since most sites that generate 20,000,000 or more page views per day are portal sites, weather sites, map sites, etc. that aren't targeted to specific audiences and have a lot of waste circulation for the advertiser's topic).

Assuming no spammy action by the publisher himself doesn't this suggest a financial advantage to going for a er, "P"? (From a purely publisher perspective, of course)

I don't know, but I'm fairly sure that there's some financial advantage in having traffic of 20,000,000+ page views per day. :-)

No kidding! :)

But, you're smart enough to know it's not about the quantity. I've been offered "fluff" sites with hundreds of thousands of daily page views but largely useless, "gawk" traffic with very little scope for monetising. I'll trade you ten of those for your site ;)

As markus007 mentions, just because you have the impressions does not guarantee you admission. Once you hit the 20 million monthly impressions mark, drop AdSense support an email asking about applying to be a premium publisher.
