    Hi

    Title says it all. Goes google disable accounts for High CTR say 5% even if it is organic.

    By the way what do you consider the safe highest CTR?

    Thanks

    If it is organic it is ok.
    And at the second question: I think a CTR lower than 10% is ok.

    Since when is 5% a high CTR? Even if your CTR is 50%; if your site is legitimate and there's no trickery involved, there's no problem.

    Never worry about a higher CTR, if its genuine theres nothing to be concerned about, especially if the traffic is quite stable.

    No mine is not blackhat. And I don't get 5%. But hope to get soon.

    I was afraid of ban due to high CTR so did not blend the ads. Now I will atleast somewhat blend them. :)

    I am always scared about being banned by Google. I don't know how it feels to completely depend on Adsense.

    Traffic for a website can change with season. Similarly CTR can also change. I don't know how Google takes care of that.

    From what I had read from several webmaster's experiences, some say it is really risky to have high CTR and sudden fluctuations. Google can ban them without the need to give a reason. Some say it will not be a big problem because always the traffic should be continuous to show that it is genuine. You can request re-consideration if Google bans. That is atleast one good thing to hope.

    A high or a low ctr can get you banned if you're trying to game the system. If you're doing things legit you shouldn't have to worry about whatever it might be. Google is not a bunch of ogres rubbing their hands with glee looking to see who they can ban. Read the TOS and Policies, abide by them, and your tenure with them should be quite pleasant.

    5% is well above average. Not even 1% is average.

    I have sites with over 14% click through rate. Google has been paying out for over 5 months now.

    Please read their TOS and keep it white hat and organic - you'll be fine.

    As long as you not game google then you are safe. It really doesn't matter what your click through rate is as long as they are natural or organic clicks.

    I always think lowere than 5% ctr is safe. I don't trust google, as they can ban u anytime. when sometimes i get more than 3% ctr i just take the google ad code out of the site. Just to be on the safe side.

    That's not being safe, that's being irrationally paranoid. Think about it, if what you are saying is true, then they will ban you at anytime which means it doesn't matter a whit what your CTR is.

    Agree with some of the above posters - 5% is not high. If you are legit, and CTR is consistent, no matter the percentage, you should be ok.
