Extremely low CTR (0.05%) on youtube?

    So I just started a youtube channel. Two days ago I managed to link my AdSense account with my YouTube account; and today I checked my performance report in my AdSense account.

    I know it's a really small sample (one video with 1800~ views in 2 days or so), and I wasn't expecting much, but isn't 0.05% CTR way too low? (I'm saying 0.05% because I accidentally misclicked and ad when I tried closing it once.) Is there any particular reason for this to be happening? Maybe ads are not displaying in some countries? I don't really know and google has no mail support whatsoever.

    (And according to my youtube analytics I have 0 monetized views for some reason, I guess it updates every few days: 6fx6z.png )

    Thanks in advance.

    YT CTR is usually low but that seems a little extreme.

    That being said you can't really accurately predict your CTR from only 1800 views. Give it a little more time for stats to update and some more views to come in.
