    Its ok because you are not doing any blackhat method.

    Dont send fake traffic it may cause your account to be banned.

    if you´re not doing any shady stuff on the website just contact them and tell them about your concerns.
    ask them to have a look at your website and then you will see if you need to be worried or not.
    and btw, when you are not doing anything blackhat on that website why do you open the thread in the blackhat seo section then?

    I asked this because in my knowledge a CTR above 3% is always dangerous and I have had a very bad experience earlier with adsense
    Sorry for posting in in Blackhatseo section..moderators can move this to white hat seo section

    Contact the service bro, explain them thing with your situation and it will be okay as long as you don't promote fake content, nude or similar. And show them where you place ads, better do it on time, some preventive..

    i still think just be honest with them.
    if that CTR will get you into trouble it will do it anyway.
    if you contact them you can at least show them that you have nothing to hide.
    and as mentioned earlier in this thread, to send fake traffic or trying to lower that CTR will probably result in bigger problems then the high but honest CTR itself

    I think your CTR will raise flags and you may be manually reviewed. If you do not anything shady, you'll be fine. However, if you break the slightiest rule of their obscur TOS, you might be in trouble.

    Contacting them could be a way to go.

    At least to beat you the first before you're making more money with them and you are not paid.
    At some cases, There will click bombarding from the hatred or competitors; therefore, you should contact them in the first hand and make sure everyting is working properly inside your account.

    I used to have 20% and over...

    If they are real visitors + targeted people there's nothing to worry about, even if it's 50%.

    Beware of click bombing, this will get your adsense account banned, once banned you are banned forever. It is very hard to get back to adsense. You will get a message sent by Google that your website triggered invalid clicks therefore caused your adsense account to be banned.

    Go through their terms with a fine tooth comb, then call them.

    Explain that you don't know exactly why your getting 8% CTR when you know 3% is high.


    If you call them before you get put into manual review, and you will, it will look better on your part.


    wow, maybe I'm wrong lol.

    ctr is ok, just don't send fake traffic at any cost! if you want to be sure about keeping your acc safe, remove ads from above the fold
