    I would be interesting to know a new way. ( I know one... Take adsense off your site and sell ads space on your own.)

    Take a look at your ads and remove the ones that look cheap (it's quite dangerous though to rely on that but..), than filter those websites.

    I remember Business.com gave cheap clicks so I removed that one (Yes, a few months ago a friend asked me to click a Business.com ad to see if it got him a lot of money or not and I did it )

    With AdSense, the trick is to write content that targets high paying keywords.

    You cannot really filter out low-paying ads unless you know which keywords are triggering those ads. That can be really difficult to do.

    Personally, I think you are better off just allowing a mix of low and high paying ads to appear. Each click is still additional revenue.

    Good info, James.

    Here is an old Google article on this topic. It was referenced in one of the pages that James provided.

    I think that you can make an educated guess on which ads are low paying. The ringtones, wallpaper, meta search engines, arbitrage mfa sites pay pennies and you can slowly make your own blacklist.

    It can be done but it's a question of whether it is worth the effort. Usually you end up with a new batch of low paying ads a few days later.

    It is ultimately driven by the content on a page. If the page focuses on low cost AdWords keywords, you will not see many high paying AdSense ads.

    Correct.

    Some niches like 'celebrity' attract a lot of low paying ads even with well written content. I did a experiment on a celebrity site where (1) I blocked the low paying ads with the competitive ad filter and (2) placed well written content on the homepage. The site would make $5 a day for few days and then was back to pennies. After three times blocking the low paying ads and rewriting the content, I gave up. It's not worth the effort.

    Like you said, "it is ultimately driven by the content on a page". The competitive ad filter can only help you so much. But I think that it a good idea to clean house once in a while.
