Question about arbitrage and Adsense TOS

I recently read in an ebook how to create a "traffic middleman" site with Adsense ads on it for a highpaying keyword, and you bid much less money as an advertiser for the same keywords on a smaller PPC service. I think this is the called arbitrage, right? Is this against the Google terms of service? Or is it only a violation of TOS if you are buying Adword? Is there any reason for Google to care if you are doing it with ads on another PPC?

Thanks for any help. I don't want to lose my Adsense account, which I've heard has happened with arbitrage sites.

    Whether it is against Adsense TOS or not is open to interpretation. But lots of people have lost their Adsense account because of it. Typically they receive a letter saying that their business model is incompatible with Adsense. So in other words, don't fo it.

    Do not get between a wombat and a chocolate biscuit; you will regret it dearly!

      I've heard about people losing their accounts for doing arbitrage with Adwords and Adsense (ie. both on Google), but I want to clarify if this has also happened for people using not Adwords but instead a small PPC service, like on search123 or something.

    You may be able to get away with it for a while but in the long run you are likely to lose your Adsense account, it just depends how it takes for Adsense to realise what you are doing.
