CTR far too high

    Hello,

    I see a CTR over 100% on one of my sites which usually underperforms (all my sites averages is normal). In other words I have more clicks than impression (approx. 12 impressions).

    Shame on me that I am not able to tell who made the clicks from statscounter. Where can I find the information in statscounter? Where in Google Analytics?

    Will it be ok, or shall I inform Adsense proactively?

    that sounds incredible to me, an CTR over 100% - it is like buying something in the supermarket and getting twice the money back.

    Beware, ctr above 5-6 % and you come under radar.

    I know it sounds incredibale, but it happens. I still don't know what to do; my overall CTR is normal (measured over all sites).

    I have now reported the unusual CTR to Adsense.

    Actually how do figure the CTR %? Is it overall of the adsense account or ads per site?

    If this happen only one day, it is fine. If it continue happen, then better report to adsense team since this might be click bomb

    You should be able to find the IP from analytics. Just look through the visitors log and find out the IP that visited that page often.
