    I have multiple sites using the same adsense code across all sites, and my cpc sucks. Would creating new code for each site make a difference and boost my cpc?

    Adsense's CPC is in no way related to the code in itself but the data it gathers from the site where it is placed.

    higher cpc's come to play when the CTR is higher.

    I'm trying to get a good grasp on this myself.

    My CTR is currently 10%. Before I moved around some stuff I had a placement on one pace where it would occasionally hit $1.25 CPC but didn't have enough traffic to profit from it. With the way it is now I have created multiple code instances of different sizes for my layout. I still get the same traffic but it just seems that a click on what was a $1.25 site is now worth a lot less. Basically a click on any site seems to be worth as much as the lowest cpc site in the group. All my ads on each page are well targeted to the sites content so that doesn't seem to be a problem.

    An better explanation might be beneficial to the both of us.

    I'm trying to get a grasp on things. Not to hijack this thread, but I put up some numbers and have been looking into this for the last 40 minutes. Seems like higher the pageviews, more the CPC.. from the looks of it.

    if you will have more adsense blocks on your page, the CPC will be lower, I think this is your problem , you have too many adsense blocks on your page.
