    Its the number of clicks you get per impression. So if you get 200 impressions and 100 clicks then that is a 50% click through rate.

    yep, amazon mechanical turk is good, so is buyhitscheap dot com

    just FYI you generally want your CTR to be as low as possible, preferably under 5%

    it all depends on what your doing. if you're doing legit white hat, then you shouldn't really be to worried about ctr

    if you're doing other stuff (like filling out your own offers.....or gettting a bot to fill them out) then yeah, getting other sources of traffic would be a good idea

    im using god cpa iframe on my page, but they think im an email marketer. so maybe thats make sense? i mean people that "open my email" if he clicks on that means he want it if i describe what it is in the email.. or ??

    edit: the cpa networks thinks im a email marketer.

    impressions only really mean anything when you run banners. If you're using a text link or something there will be no impressions recorded, which shows your CTR well above 100%, nothing unusual about that.

    Everyone is confusing two things here. CTR and conversions. CTR is how many clicks divided by impressions of banners you have. But I assume you are using text links so there are no impressions so it will be over 100%, it doesn't matter

    But i think Big G will not give any payment on this high CTR...the safe ratio is between 3-14%...this is not written anywhere but its according to my experience!!!
