    One of my blogs is getting over 100 unique visitors a day but yet i get no clicks. Is this normal? My ad placing is pretty well done so I am not sure.

    From my point of view, 100 unique/day is not so much, so the chance to get an ad clicked is very low.
    But you can try to re-adjust your ads on the site, there are a ton of topics on this forum on how to place your ads, and maybe your CTR will increase.

    Try changing your color relevant to the add's displayed. Be patient wait and watch, sure you will get clicks soon. Assume that the practical conversion rate is around 0.5% to 2%.

    What are your ads - ad$3n$3 or affiliate links? 100 uniques a day is really not a lot - it would be very suspicious if you had more than 2-3% CTR, which means 2-3 clicks a day. You could expect that if you had quality content and very relevant ads, usually not ad$3n$e but an affiliate links. For instance, if you have a website about zero percent credit card balance transfers and you had links to cards offering the deals, you may expect that 2-3% visitors will click on the links. With ad$3n$3 the average CTR is probably a lot lower.

    I didnt start monetizing my blog until I hit 1K a day in UVs. 100 people a day is not really that much and unless your promoting something really unique or really targeted you probably wont see much money but it does seem strange that you get zero clicks.

    at this point I would work on promoting your blog and adding content to it like crazy. Just remember: monetizing is the easy part. Building up a strong daily visitor count is the work.

    try to make your ads look like they are part of the content.
    then the visitors think it is just another link to one of your great, unique and high quality information content ;)

    Its true the hardest thing to do is get traffic, but once you have a consistent 500-1000 hits a day it should be easy to make money and monetize

    It depends how targeted your visitors are. If you have 10 very targeted visitors a day you could very well have a CTR of 10% for an affiliate link, assuming you have quality content. That's not very much though anyway (one of my sites is like that, link it gets 1 uv a day but it still makes sales every now and then). If you have 100 targeted you can expect a decent ctr for the affiliate product. It's true 100 uqs are not a lot at all, but if they are targeted who cares. You don't want tirekickers anyway, unless you can convert those tirekickers to your list or something.

    As for Adsense I have no clue, I got banned a long time ago. That CTR seems very low to me even with only 100 uqs (I know, with adsense its about volume, among other things right?)
    With 100uqs a day there's bound to be someone who will accidentally click ads, I know I do all the time on my slower computer, especially when running other programs. Did you try incorporating a new theme if you have wordpress? Some people claimed that with a nicer looking site they got a higher CTR than with adsense traps (you know those really ugly simple adsense sites where people try to disguise adsense ads as a navigational menu and such.). If your bounce rate is low it could be that. That and your content isn't legible or readable (readable as in someone wants to stay and read it because that's what they are looking for).

    Hope that helps.

    There are many different factors for your situation man. 1. Make sure that your ads are targeted for your niche, that is probably the main thing you should be worrying about. 2. 100 uniques a day is not a lot of traffic at all, even know its not a lot you should still be getting about 2 clicks a day, 2% CTR. With that being said, your traffic isnt the problem, the problem is probably your ad placements and how targeted (or not targeted) your ads are. i hope this helps

    This is not good to any blog. Please mind it your blog should be colorful and everything should separate. Don't worry it will be improved after certain day.
