For the first time Google Team asked me to remove AdSense from some specific pages.
These page did not show relevant ads so it doesnt bother me, I was just surprised.

I know some people this has happened to before, just not recently. At least they are asking rather than just kicking you out.

Did they say why? Or do you know that your page was breaking a rule?

They kindly asked me to remove Adsense from some specific pages which was not able to deliver ads of use for my visitors and their advertisers.
I can agree with that, I was just surprised. The rest of the website is doing fine and no problem with the other pages.

I'm curious as to why you had AdSense on those page in the first place. All they could do was drive up your impression count.

yea, i think birdstuffs right here. thats why channels are so useful; you can kill the ads that arent preforming.
or were you still making $$ off these ads?

@Nicke : from when you removed the ads from these pages are your earnings more?

The ToS specifies that you cannot have ads with pages that have forms (subscribe/unsubscribe), search results, etc... on it. Although you haven't been very specific, I'm assuming that those pages fit the criteria in the ToS that require you not to have their ads on those types of pages.

I got a similar email from them about a month ago.

You can have them on pages that have search results. That was changed a long time ago.

I have just begun to try to track some individual pages... I have over 1500 on one site, so it will take some changing around to get a decent idea of where the CTR is good or not. My real interest is finding out where those higher paying clicks are and then featuring that page/article on my main page!
My question is this...
How long is a good test period for tracking a page before you can be assured of the average CTR? How many impressions would make a "good-enough" test?
