    Services forum. Also, if you're legit you shouldn't have a problem, but G can be d-bags about adsense sometimes.

    If all your traffic is organic and your not doing anything other than publishing content and your visitors and clicking on your ads, you have nothing to worry about.

    Anything above 10% is flagged as false traffic. Mainly because it means that 10 out of 100 people who visit your site are clicking the ads.

    when i started about 5 month ago i wasn't getting clicks and less that 10 page impressions per day so my account is old... if yours is 2 and has been on for a while then you dont have a problem you can go as high as 70% CTR... i've been there then i worried about the number and i found a way to lower it down by bringing in more traffic =)

    The biggest issue you face, which I just realized is your Paying for traffic. In Adsense eye's this is a big no no. If your buying directly from google using adwords its definately a cause for concern and your acct can get banned.

    It's best to read thoroughly through their Terms and find out if your traffic is acceptable.

    I got banned for buying PPC traffic from MSN when they first opened their adcenter. Arbitrage of any sort is a big no-no.

    Always its not equal to ban. I am having really low CTR, but I have no complaints. I have seen career forums getting more than 30% CTR or may be way more than that. Guys and Girls tend to click almost everything to find some suitable jobs. That time may be google checks, but that for me is not ban. I stick with 5 to 10.

    it is not just about ctr.accounts get banned if just junk traffic click on ads without conversions.I have had ctr of about more than 10% for over a year and it is all good since all traffic is from google and the ads configuration in my sites are also complying with the policies.Do not freak out if the ctr goes above 10 percent.

    Its all about how much G trusts your account.

    I've had 50% ctr for 2-3 months and the account is still fine, Average CTR for 9 months is around 24%.

    If you are a legit publisher with good traffic, CTR is not an issue.

    if you are 100% legit on traffic, if that's the natural CTR you're fine. As long as ppl click and PPC users don't change keywords and your visitors convert so they keep on going they don't have a problem. If they lose a costumer and your traffic isn't legit then you should worry. This way even with 20% you're okay, just a good template.

    If you are following adsense TOS then its irrelevant how high your CTR is.

    However, if you are experiencing jumps from a low % to a higher one for example - 1% to 12% without doing anything then you should investigate this, and make sure you aren't being click bombed and if you find out you are - you should report this to Google to ensure you don't get your account banned
