Does reverse smartpricing exist?

Is it account wide?

There are lots of theories about smartpricing.

Does anyone believe there is such a thing as reverse smartpricing where your traffic is blessed as "good" by the AdSense gods and your EPC is thus rewarded? Is it account based or site based?

Maybe even awarded a higher share of the revenue than the 78% (or so) average figure that's often discussed?

I believe in this, except I prefer to think of it as a trust factor.

It shows up in one of my subject areas with all associated channels blessed with consistantly higher eCPM than other subjects. Doesn't matter how old/new the content is, it climbs from a poor start into a very advantagous range, and tends to stay there.

Other subjects (and their related channels) perform between okay and poor, so it isn't sitewide, at least in my case.

I think I've found some hints suggesting something like a trust factor when I explore AdWords under my subject areas.
