    I've set up about 20 autoblogs over the past few months and I'm finally starting to get some traffic but my CTR has been extremely low, like less than 1%. Has anyone else been experiencing this? I've spent hours optimizing my pages to look natural and making the ads as visible as possible. I feel like G is messing with me and I'm going crazy. Can anyone help me?

    Go on google adsense section and read. That can help you.

    Ask yourself truthfully, do they look like dedicated blogs, or autoblogs?

    If i didnt know how to make autoblogs i would never guess they were on autopilot. Is this common to have such a low CTR for autoblogs?

    In most cases they are pretty on topic unless a specific post is too short and doesnt make the topic clear. I have 82 impressions today and no clicks again... this is ridiculous. I've gone back to using the large rectangle ad right below the post title with the colors blended with the site. I'm not sure what else to do. I think G is shaving clicks. Dammit! Yesterday I had like 130+ impressions and earned .06 cents. This is driving me crazy.

    You really just need to tuff it out. Just keep pushing out blogs, and sooner or later, it will come. I made about 15 of my blogs 3 weeks ago, and just recently started to see some clicks. Out of all my channels, I'll average 300-400 impressions, with about 10-15 clicks..for about $6-8 bucks a day right now. I'm planning on pushing out a few blogs a week or so with teh same results. Good thing is they are all set it and forget it, so my outlook is, everything is just passive income. As long as I make my domain and hosting fees, everything else is in the green.

    I was hoping to get results like that but my blogs have been running for 3-6 months a peice and I'm getting 100 hits a day and about 1 click per 300 impressions. The clicks are usually less than 20 cents. I'm no where near being able to pay my hosting and domains at this rate. How many posts per day are you doing per blog? 1 blog per domain or are you using subdomains?

    it's one blog per domain for now...but I'm gonna start using subdomains soon, to get the Keyword in the domain name, that's really what gets high in SE. I have one blog, barely 2 weeks, and since it has the search term in the name, it's #3 out of 1.5 million with a general search of the keyword, and #2 of 200k with the "keyword" search.

    I don't differentiate with the tld..i have everything, from .com, net, org, and info. They all seem to work for me. All my content is from CC, only promo is blog posting and I use BMD, and right now I only have one adsense account. I don't wanna risk another one yet incase I leave some footprints somewhere and get both banned. I will start a new one if needed later on.
