    There is no set figure as such, but your CTR is way too low, 3-5% is normal, you will need some more ad optimization.

    Yup, 3-6% are really good. You should try to get more traffic and change the positioning of your ads

    It depends on the site's type.
    MFA sites can reach 20%, while community sites will rarely cross the 1% mark.

    I think that is too little. You can improve your CTR to a great extent by blending / contrasting your ad with the contents depending on the niche and suitable ad placement. The range is 2-5% and there are people getting more than 10%. Beyond that exercise caution. Good luck... :D

    Under 1% is a bit bad...:/
    You need to change your location, your colors etc etc and see if you can get that up to 1% at least.

    CTR, for me ranges from less than 1% up to averages of 33% 40 something %, depends on which site.

    For me, high traffic, low ctr, low paying niche.

    Low traffic, better ctr, slightly better paying niche.

    One of my niches, normal to have 100% and 50% ctr for most of the day if receiving traffic.

    As you can see it differs.

    On a high traffic site a CTR around 2% is quite good for me.
    Usually MFA sites get a lot higher CTR.

    With heavy volume, anything over 2 percent is pretty good.

    Anything above 10%, you should start getting nervous...Google bots dont like high CTRs
