I was just looking at Google Website Optimizer, however you need a 'conversion' page in order to measure results. If trying to optimize ad positions, this doesn't appear to be possible.

Even without GWO I can't see a way to track clicks in Adsense, any ideas?

One option would be to set up multiple channels for each site, and then use those channels for your split testing.

Earnings on a particular page in analytics could be somehow done if you add a parameter to one version of the page depending on your frameowrk and how you are modifying the pages themselves for the test. I am not quite sure how the different channels would work in analyics...

It might be a little easier using Reedge.com as you might find it easier doing the split testing.

Yes, channels sounds like a very usable idea. I can set up the varying pages myself, then let Adsense handle all the data collection. – DisgruntledGoat Sep 12 '10 at 18:48
