    Hi all, I'm newbie in Adsense. Actually, I'm running Adsense via DFP.
    My content is Tech news targeting. The CPC from USA is too low (just 0.1$), as my opinion.
    So what I want to know is the average CPC of this niche. Is it too low? Is it worth to continue?
    Thanks all in advance!

    @Mod: Because Adsense section is closed, so if this topic is not appropriate, please help me to move it :)

    Adsense + Tech sites is usually a bad marriage.... not only is the CPC on the low side, the CTR is typically a poor number as well.

    If it were me I would be looking at something a little different, such as selling banner ads or something along those lines.

    The first part is not true.
    Tech niche sites are actually good for adsense.
    I get $1+ CPC for USA. Although it's less than 10 cents for Asia.
    Second suggestion is good, but you really need a good quality website with high amount of traffic.
