Hi guys,

Currently with facebook ads traffic I have an average of 10% CTR
in the account in general and 30% to 40% in one ad unit CTR.

This scares me for a possible ban, how can I decrease it?

Is it safe to send fake traffic from any website? which can recommend me?

Thanks

the best safe ways you can do is stop your fb ads. then use normal ways to get traffic.

10% CTR in 2019?

WOW, I'd love to see your theme, and ad positions, even 5% I think it damn impossible today.

if possible, please tell us your niche, no need very specific, like health, etc.

The theme is a basic one with an ad before the content. Niche is money.

OP if your traffic is legit and the ad clicks are validated with real users don't worry about it. Adsense won't ban for this.

Also to be as safe as possible be in line with the TOS, no ads above the fold etc all the good stuff.

I wouldn't remove a traffic source that generates me money.

I used to have low CTR like 2% with my former theme.
Well since i changed my theme to EXTRA by elegant themes....my CTR has been between 5 to 8% with 950px wide ads

Keep it like this man, unless there's a blatant TOS issue you should be fine. Had projects with 20% CTR back in the day when FB traffic was the shit. Used to have video sites with overlay ads and skip buttons. Never had an issue with Adsense.

Click through rate is a secondary condition to whether you get banned or not.
A primary condition is the site you are sending it to, and whether the traffic you refer converts at roughly the expected rate FOR THEM
If you are sending a lot of "dud" traffic to the Adwords (client side AdSense) landing page, and it is converting for the client at a much lower rate than expected - then you might get investigated or banned.

I've sent AdSense traffic through that converts at almost 50% to a moped / scooter deal for years on end. SInce 2009 if I remember. Only stopped about 18 months ago.
Adwords client was chuffed - I was chuffed, Google was chuffed visitor got what they wanted
If you are ranking for the right buying keywords. Keywords that contain explicit buying imperatives as well as product/service descriptors, then a very high CTR is quite normal.

Example people that got to my site for "UK scooter" converted at about 4%. Those that arrived for terms like "£100 off moped delivered" as a general search term converted at about 35%.
The first phrase is full of window shoppers, students, "maybe's" and research type queries,
The second phrase contains people who know exactly what they want, when they want it and who they want it from. Those people are going to click - because that's exactly why they came to your site.

If you visitors to your website with crappy traffic and "trick" people into clicking adsense ads. You're probably in for a rough time. If you are legit, you are cool and good to go.

Man you are doing a good job! I'm still testing things and can't get more than 7% in CTR.. I think 10% is very safe (Supposing you aren't misleading visitors to click on Ads).

the best safe ways you can do is stop your fb ads. then use normal ways to get traffic.

The source of traffic isn't the point here! it would be the same CTR even if he got traffic from another source.

The only way to decrease is it to prevent bot traffic and fake clicks
This CTR seems unreal, most sites have less than 5% and this is normal.

Thanks for your anwser,
Is there any way I can see if the people who clicks the ad then really convert into the advertiser's site?
this would be good to know if the traffic I'm using is good or not

Bro, I checked the theme, nothing special, and your niche is money, 950px is nothing special too, if your data is right, I think u have found sth golden lol.

Do u also place other ads, where? And dimensions?

Smartlook or hotjar will give you an idea if traffic has bot performance
To check conversions on advertisers site you need to have access to their pixel (if it exists), so in most cases, you are unable to see that unless you have direct ads.

Most advertisers also target users with by using IPs, cookies, etc so the ads shown to your users would be different to the ones that you see, but you can check some of the info about an advertiser on your Adsense dashboard.
