    I have a global adsense ctr of 12% for my videos, trueviews+banner ads.

    however, when i checekd my statistic for video ads (only trueviews), it seems that my ctr is as high as 70%!!

    Should i be worried?

    Its a good sign but my revenues from adsense are exceeding 200$ a day for 50,000 total youtube video views/day.


    often, i see in my estimated earnings that are at 210$, fall 15 mins later to 190$, like if there was a lot of invalid clicks. that's what worries me.

    i get 10k visits a day from organic searches, related videos and such, and about 40-50k visits from reddit, stumbleupon, facebook and twitter.

    Its all true viewers and real people.

    My statistic for related videos/organic indicate 10 to 15% CTR for in-stream ads and 0.70% for banner ad clicks
    My statistics for views from refferals indicate 43 to 70% CTR for instream ads and 0.04% for banner ad clicks.

    can theses get me in trouble if my adsense is manually checked?

    What are your videos about? How do you get that many views?

    they're about bodybuilding body transformations.

    A part of the traffic is organic from youtube searches and related videos (30%), the other is refered via facebook pages posting my videos (20%) and the other 50% is bought youtube views from real US/UK/CA visitors that are reffered from social media websites, that i use to boost my new video's rankings before the natural traffic starts flowing in.
