    According to Google, no CPM ad should result in less revenue than the CPC ads it replaces would've produced for you.

    Blocking ads usually means reducing revenue as the ad chosen to display out of the pool that matched your page is the one that should produce the highest eCPM for you.

    That's true; if Google's own ads are appearing it's probably because they genuinely do pay more than the alternative. If it's a noticeable drop, however, it wouldn't hurt too much to block them for a couple of days to see if anything changes.

    Actually, if google own ads are being displayed on your site, and you see a dramatic decrese in your earnings block them right away just like in my case. Google is to determine whether a publisher clicks are rendering clients for advertisers faster on its own ads then the advertisers i.e. smart pricing. if it realizes that they are display google adsense ads however not rendering clients, they will smart price your whole account which is what happened to me. I blocked them for 2 weeks. my earnings stablized, and I unblock them and my earnings are back to what they were a month ago. The eCPM is back to normal.
