It is also well known that blocking ads will reduce income.This can be explained easily.If you are seeing certain ads on your website, then you can assume that they are the highest paying ads available at that moment that fits your content.If you block any of these ads, then you are losing one of the highest paying ads available at that moment.This was what Google used to tell publishers before, now they seem to have taken more drastic words to stop adsense publishers from blocking ads.

Now Google seems to be describing blocking ads as a "Grave Mistake" as it can drastically reduce a publishers income.

Have any of you experienced the same warnings in your adsense accounts? If you have more information, please provide in the comments section!
