Adsense higher CTR leads to higher bounce rate?

    Hello guys, I have a question for you.

    I have two blogs, all fall in the scope of cell phones, and almost the same ads placement.
    SEMrush
    One blog has about 4.5% CTR and 68% bounce rate on average.
    The other has about 2.5% CTR and 50% bounce rate on average.

    So my question is: does higher CTR leads to higher bounce rate?

    Thanks:p

    If you have a 100% CTR, then you have a 100% bounce rate. Right?
    So, I would have to agree with you.
    In general, the higher the CTR, the higher the bounce rate.

    You don't really need to worry about bounce rate.

    If adsense is your game, then you want people to
    bounce out, right? Just via an adsense link.

    If you have people hanging around the site, what good
    are they?

    The bottom line is money.

    as long as you are getting high CTR I don't think you need to worry about anything.

    Hey guys, thanks for your replies.

    I am just kind of upset about the high bounce rate and less impressions.

    But yes, you guys are ABSOLUTELY right!!
