    According to the data, CTR is quite low. I suggest you to pay around with the ads setting and placement to get better CTR.

    Click Though Rate

    how many clicks per 100 impressions

    Like if you will have 1 click/100 impression, you will have 1% CTR

    Adsense is not what it used to be back in the day.I also suggest trying different placements of ads like in the middle of a post,header etc.

    Agreed. Definitely need to try some different ad placement or different ad types. I suggest the Leaderboard and 300x250 banners as they seem to get the best CTR. If you have room for it 336x280 does well too. Try to place the near your content so they get the user's attention.

    CTR = total of click / total impression x 100 (the unit of the CTR is in percentage)

    You can use leaderboard(728x90) above the fold. One more ad is Medium Rectangle (300 x 250), you can use this size in the content with using table. And try to optimize your ad with color, font and placement etc. Made a change and notice one week, see is there any improvement or not. If not then try another way, you will must find a good result.

    Try with different ad placements, and try to get more visitors. That should give you more data about what user do on your site and will allow you to make better placement of your ads, which means more clicks=money.
