    If my site is WhiteHat - Search Engine optimized - traffic coming from yahoo, bing, etc. but I have a CTR from these search engines on Adsense of 15-20%. Should I be worry to reduce it somehow? I tired to buy ****** ads but I heard google adsense doesn't like purchased traffic? My adsense eCPM = $260.
    Should I worry? cuz this is my important account I depend on.
    Thanks

    Yes you should worry. If your traffic is truly SE driven and white hat then you don't have CTR's that high. I'm guessing you have an MFA site which still works in some cases but will eventually get banned. A CTR of 15% is way too high. You are headed for a ban.

    If you want to buy traffic it might help reduce your CTR. I've never heard of Google hating purchased traffic but it would jot surprise me if they did.

    Your ctr can be one hudred million % if the traffic converts for the advertisers. It's fine if you follow the TOS, e.g. don't have ads directly under the title, etc. They won't ban you just for a high ctr, that would be retarted...

    Also, don't buy traffic, that might cause a ban. And try to diversify your income, it's never good to depend on one source, especially if it's adsense.

    Just re-arrange your ads to a less optimized layout and get it under 10% if your that worried about it.

    they will not ban you for CTR if you traffic converts. However, with such high CTR you will definitely be under Google radar and most likely you will be blessed with manual review, and you will never know what they might find.
    and believe me, you don't want to be under their radars.
