    Hey guys. My CTR has always been extremely low. I see people saying they average 2-3% and I can barely get above 0.4% However, my CPC is pretty good (around $0.60 on average)

    Can anyone give advice on how to increase my CTR?

    I would add three ads on each page ...

    1. add content blended ad. Usually before your article.
    2. add the second ad in the sidebar but make it's background contrast.
    3. add an ad at the bottom for people who finish reading your content.

    Make sure that the ads are not distracting, except for the second one.

    Hope this works for you :)

    Just wanted to point out that the CTR depends not just on what you do but also on the nature of your traffic. If your visitors are ad blind, like those on a technology blog, you're never going to have a CTR comparable to that of a blog read by old people, who are less ad blind and more likely to click.

    You'd be surprised how much money can be made for just this reason, that your audience is less ad blind.
