    I've seen similar stats... but mostly if the traffic is coming from sources other than the SERPs. If ur traffic is coming straight from the SERPs then the culprit is most likely your template.

    QUICK TIP: The more you beautify your website the more distractions you create and the more you diverge people's attention from the action you ultimately want them to perform. The principle that works well for adsense sites is to always KISS

    this is traffic i bought from the 10,000 real traffic thread.

    i am considering just having all traffic go to a page with "free ipod offer" with only the picture of the free ipod banner.

    im sure regardless of where the traffic comes from, everyone would love a free ipod

    You still got $1.20 a click.

    Of course not great, but if you could get more traffic and have better ad placement, you could see some real results.
