Re: AdSense sensing, Google ignoring?

Being a part of the Google advertising programme does not warrant indexing
and  good ranking for your pages (arguable though). Pages are scanned  for
patterns  in order for ads to be determined 'off-line' and delivered  upon
demand.  However,  would Google just store information which is a  pairing
between  page  (URL) and ads, or would it also cache the page and its  en-
tirety  and  add it to the search results index? The latter could lead  to
search  engine  poisoning because AdSense is often susceptible to  use  by
spammers (yet Google review sites before acceptance).

Either  way,  as my answer is so poorly-constructed, the point to make  is
that  having contextual ads is /one/ thing. Scoring high in Google or even
getting pages to show up is an entirely different matter. The lust for be-
ing  crawled could lead to misuse of AdSense, but in turn generate revenue
for  Google. It verges the fraudulent and questionable business practices;
maybe even exploitation of one's position as an SE monopoly, driven almost
by  monoculture. I will omit any conspiracy theories or claims that Google
prefer to refer surfers to sites where Google holds estate.

Good luck,
