    Hello,

    as the title already says - I need to increase CTR. I am using Google Adsense and my CTR is 0.3% which is too low and I am afraid that google will suspend my account. If you can give me ANY advice about not looking suspicious to Google I'd be very glad. One of my faucets has already been suspended by Google and I don't want to let it happen again.

    On the faucet site I have 4 anti bot buttons on which you must first click to let submit button appear. Buttons are intentionaly sticked right next to ads so users can easily misclick and make me money. It is genial (imho) and prevents bots from stealing and makes user give me something back BUT the CTR is unacceptable. Even though I make 3 times of what I invest almost every day I recon I should be earning much more with this illicit strategy.

    I know that if Google finds out about my unfair means of getting clicks I'll get suspended (this time probably permanently) and that's the reason why I want to make all statistics look appropriate.

    Thank you in advance for any advice!

    Increasing your CTR won't make your site looks more legit. You'll get a manual inspection sooner or later and will get banned if you infrige any rule. Misleading user into clicking your ads is against Adsense policy.

    You need to know that Google tracks everything. If every user misclick your ad and click without visiting the advertiser website, it will reaise flag and eventually, it will lead to some manual verification.

    I wouldn't say misleading, after all the visitors know what they are doing and they know that the button is dangerously close to ad (however not touching). I don't want to give up the faucet system but to keep myself in green numbers I must do some compromises.

    Google already banned one of my faucets but I think it was because I had Analytics on it and Google just had more info about visitors than it could have had.

    Do you think there are some precautions or advice how to prolong the time before they get me? Currently I make only about $5/day on the faucet but it slowly adds up.

    Focus on building real traffic on a real site.

    "dangerously" close is way enough to get you banned by google. https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/1346295#Encouraging_accidental_clicks

    I expected a little more black hat approach than "real traffic on a real site" :ugh1:

    Black hat and illegal stuff (as in stealing advertiser from their money) are 2 entirely different things.

    In the end almost everything here is consequently immoral. If you use botnets for hoarding social network profiles to promote your web and increase your rank you consequently decrease revenue of those who make webs with high quality content but not enough black hat means of promotion, somebody could say that you might be stealing. Please, don't try to teach me about morals.
