    You should check each keyword you get traffic for and check their CTR% and not for total, otherwise its impossible to tell you if your CTR% is low or not :)

    Hi man.
    In my practice CTR for 1-st position ranges from 19 to 34 percents, but depends heavily on niche.
    This info is not enough to analyze your CTR, because I do not see distribution of impressions\CTR for each key.
    But keep calm - looks evr. is fine.
    As a general recommendation: check out buddies in your SERPs and look what do they propose, analyze desr, title, try to make it better looking and more informative.
    Cheers

    Never thought of that... as I am only making $25-$45/day with this site.. Is that reasonable enough for this traffic?

    Impossible to tell without knowing your niche or if you do AdSense or Affiliate marketing. Could be too low or standard depending on your niche.

    Are you taking the piss? Most people would snatch your hand off to get a ctr like that.

    Your CTR is exceptional you are either blowing your own trumpet or are so naive you have not even noticed you have stumbled on a gold mine.

    What sort of call to actions are u putting in the ads?

    Give us some general info about your product and how you have structured the ad without getting to detailed.

    Your CTR is great. You just need a better way to monetize your traffic. Split testing offers could be your first step.

    So I'm WTFing right now. Seriously what do you mean? Seems like your comment comes out of no context at all, and you must have no clue what CTR is?

    Go 'search' Click-Trough-Rate Google and come back.
