"At the Lunch sponsored by Google today Matt Cutts confirmed the recent rumors about media bot results getting into Big Daddy. Matt said it is a bandwidth saving feature to have GoogleBot and MediaBot both contributing to big daddy. Matt also stated that you will gain zero advantage in search listings however if you are serving different content to MediaBot then to Googlebot then you could be in trouble."

Interesting. Looks like Google changed their help file on this.

"While our bot (starting with 'Mediapartners-Google') does crawl content pages for the purpose of targeting ads, this crawl is not associated with our main index crawl."

"While our bot (starting with 'Mediapartners-Google') does crawl content pages for the purpose of targeting ads, participation in AdSense does not increase the number of pages from a site in our main index." ...

Well, still sounds to me like it is an advantage to have google-ads on your site (as long as google is the no. 1 searchengine) : google will know the content has changed immediately. That can't but improve the way a site is indexed. Also, if for some reason a popular page is not listed in the index, google will (if they are smart anyhow) probably make sure they list it ASAP.
