    Hi,
    I want to suggest you to improve your content which you are posting to get impression. Mention your service very clearly in it. Use very relevant keywords in it. And also add call to action terms and mention the benefits which your competitors are not giving. These all things will help you a lot. Best of luck ......

    OP it's tough to suggest whats lacking with your website without knowing niche, site, design or content or quality of traffic.... There could be flaw in any of these are it could be standard in your industry... No one can guess and I will not suggest to show it to every one for general discussion.... Better to go and check every point and you will find your answer...

    Make sure the major keywords u are targetting is in your ad text. This way it is bolded when it is searched, Trust me this helps with CTR a lot. Plus people seeing exactly what they searched in an ad leads to a subconscious click. You can make separate ad groups for each main keyword, root keywords for example, and then customize each ad to that keyword. This will get you more clicks. There are some software available to automate this ad creation. gl

    Often people make their content way to long.
    With Content make sure you are able to hold your reads attention to the end.
    I try to keep my content short and to the point. Hyperlink all your keywords if you are able. If all else fails you visitor base would be the issue

    For what, adsense?

    Actually, I meant the click through rate (CTR) into my site. On google webmsters its showing my average impressions per keyword.

    Ive got 1300 impressions on a keywords but <10 for clicks into my site

    see, it got your attention

    Make sure to make it extremely catchy and then do not give them what they want. That is the best way to generate a high CTR. Say you have a site about iPads.. Your title should be "Massive iPad give away in March! Only 50 left"

    And then your site should have a lot of specifications about the ipad but nothing related to a give-away.
