    As I'm starting to pick up traffic, I am wondering what other people's average CTRs are. Mine are very low, but traffic is still somewhat scattered.

    My largest CTR is 0.68%, with 0.53% being my average. (It's better than 0)

    Around 3%.

    0.53% is pretty low. Probably the ads being displayed aren't targeting well .

    about 4-5% is a good ctr for me on adsense.
    when it consistently gets 7% , it sounds fishy. I inspect for spam/click bombing

    In my defense though, my WP site JUST got approved for Adsense 2 days ago (made $3 with it so far) and then my other blogs are starting to pick up, but my highest one is still at about 100 hits per day.

    Mine is 1.5-2.0%

    Yours is too low in my opinion. Anything between 1-3 is good.

    This is such a specific question. Of course you will see a wide range in CTR's without knowing the other factors (which affect it). Your industry, traffic sources, ad placement and so on will greatly affect the CTR. So keep this in mind and don't compare yourself to others without knowing these factors.

    Also, be wary of posting Adsense screenshots as it is generally against their rules and you can be banned for it.

    CTR above 5-6% is dangerous, its not normal to have constant of 1-30% you can get your adsense banned.
    I suggest you buy fake traffic to lower your CTR.

    The CTR for my Adsense site is 0.42% (it was 0.7% before I started testing), although this month it's up to 1.06%.

    If you want to bring your CTR up, start testing different ads, ad position, and ad colours on your site.

    Thank you for all of your input. My CPC is still low, but I am having less and less $0 day. I actually got to $5 in clicks this week!
