3% CTR is it a problem??

    Our site has quite high CTR, with 3%. Should we be worried about that? We have quite high traffic with more than 120,000 page impressions a day

    As long as you aren’t breaking any of Google’s terms of service to get that high CTR then it shouldn’t be a problem at all.

    However if you’ve put images next to your ads, which is against Google’s TOS, then Google could ban you.

    3% CTR is absolutely OK.

    I'd love to know how you achieve that CTR with those stats! I have a terrible 0.1 to 0.2 CTR.

    3% ctr actually is not high, so you is fine if you is not clicking your own ads or creating invalid clicks

    You don't have to worry, depending on the website, my CTR goes from 1% to 20% and never had any problem.

    I don't think you've got anthing to worry. High performance should not be a concern. But, nevertheless, drop Google Support, a word, they anyways reply after a couple of months.

    Good luck.

    3% CTR seem fair but not high to me...

    I've heard some of them have over 5% or 10% CTR, but still get paid :)

    3% is not high, it's actually quite low. You have to have a lot of traffic to make any serious money with a low CTR. Anyway, Google won't ban your site for high CTR if the clicks are legit. Perfectly legitimate CTRs of 50% or more are not unusual for individual pages of a site.

    3% is very high for huge traffic site. I can't never get over 1% CTR with my 50,000 impressions per day -_-

    I would say it is perfectley fine with Google, and if you are getting alot of traffic there should be no problem.
