Everyone here seems to talk a lot about playing whack a mole to get rid of their MFAs and how than can increase earnings. As a semi-new adsense person, I was keen to try this.

The thing is, I can't see any MFAs. All the ads I see look high quality and legit.

My niche is pretty expensive, I get between 50 - 80c/click. Am I just too expensive for the MFA market and have nothing to worry about?

Some sites or niches are plagued by MFAs; others aren't.

For a while I was spending time every day stomping on MFAs, but it's been a LOT better in recent months. I only occasionally come across something I have to add to my filter, and it's great. I'm thinking that better targeting by Google and possibly the AdWords QS are the reasons for this.

Unless I'm mistaken, the AdWords Quality Scores apply only on the AdWords side.

However, it's possible that the landing-page quality scores have pushed some advertisers' AdWords minimums so high that they've left the AdWords/AdSense network or gone out of business (since their businesses may have been too marginal to survive the QS changes).

That's what I was referring to by AdWords QS.

Are you visiting the destination URL's to review the sites or judging based on the text of the ads?

Also, as always, remember that what you see on your site is not necessarily what others see on your site.

This past weekend, I checked on the MFA's I had in my filter and noticed that 1/2 of them were gone. Google did ban a few of them a few weeks ago and a thread was started here on ww but died out quickly.

I participated in that thread and my participation died quickly because I found more MFA's still around than disappeared.
