    i believe it needs to constantly read your content so that it knows what contextual based ads to display.

    I've noticed on my site that per check by the adsense bot the number of times has gone up from twice per page to FOUR times per page which imo is stupid. I have 2 ad blocks on my page. Why does it need to check the page FOUR times to decide what content on the advert to server. I could understand 2, one for each ad banner, but not 4.

    No, in awstats i see both Googlebot and Google AdSense as seperate things, tailing the logs i see it accessing the same page so many times when a user does.

    The +X number in awstats is the number of times the bot has accessed the robots.txt file.
