    Hello

    My CTR for a CPA campaign I'm currently running is closing to 20% with 15% of that converting into leads.

    Not really using any blackhat trick but should I lower it?

    What are optimal numbers for these measures?

    If you have 15% converting I would think that is pretty good.

    I was questioned by one affiliate because my conversions were hovering about 8% and they asked me all sorts of questions before they let me slide.

    if it's white hat, then you have no fears, Present the facts of where the traffic is comming from ( not what keywords you bought for ) and that's it.

    if you have a problem, find another company...

    also the best tool for firms that skim you is small claims court .... long story short, you file a claim, prove your point ( even when they don't show up ), get awarded a judgement, hire a collection company for 40% of the take and it's done. best tool ever created in the USA.

    IF you're following all the rules then it's fine. I hover around 15-20% conversion with .16-.22 epc overall on average but as long as you follow all the offer rules then it's all OK

    If you prefer 1% CTR, then go ahead and lower it ...
