    30% CTR, yes probably. Make it look more legit.

    It all depends on what network you are getting your ads from, what your articles look like, and where your traffic is from. In short, we have no where near enough information to give you a meaningful answer.

    That said, 30% CTR is pretty high, and unless you have a really good relationship with the advertising organization and a good explanation for why the CTR is so high, then yeah, you are likely to attract some scrutiny at the least.

    While nobody can say for sure if you will be banned (other than the ad networks themselves), the operation that you are describing does not sound like it is doing anything wrong. There are a few things you should keep in mind though:
    • The articles should be honest (or at least not obviously dishonest)
    • The articles should not have any content in them that would upset the advertisers
    • If you are running ad$en$e and another offer for the banners, then you need to make sure that the two different offers don't violate each other's terms of service.

    Finally, and this is really important, every ad network is going to have parameters that will trigger a review of any given affiliate's site. We might not know the exact numbers, but it is obvious that a high CTR is one of the main things that will trigger this review. The other thing that will trigger a review though, is the final conversion %.

    Let's say that the average final conversion % is 5% (for every 100 people that click through, 5 go on to buy something, sign up, or whatever the advertiser wants them to do). If your traffic deviates from this average by more than a point or two, then the network will want to drop you, especially if you have very high CTR, because they will be certain that you are up to something.
