    I just logged in to webmaster tools and saw these figures for a keyword I am ranking top for.

    Impressions: 3500, Clicks 300.

    I am definitely ranking top for this keyword (I have checked many times).

    A 10% CTR at position 1 in the SERPS is abysmal. DO you think its possible or could there be a mistake in webmaster tools?

    Could it be down to a bad meta description? Surely more than 10% of people would blindly click the top result without reading it anyway?

    Make sure you select "country" and "web". See if that changes anything.

    I would probably think it has something to do with your Title Tag or Meta Description. Definitely should be getting more click throughs then that with a top spot.
