CTR term used in PPC. CTR refers to Click Through Ratio. Example: if your ads are shown 100 times and 2 persons have clicked on them during this then your CTR would be 2% or 2/100.

It's the click-through rate. It's calculated by dividing clicks/impressions and multiplying by 100.

Click / Impressions x 100 = Click Through Rate (CTR)

CTR mean click through rate. It is the number of ad clicks divided by the number of page views.

I managed my former employers ads to 5%, however I received a lot of phone calls from some PPC Specialists saying that they can make it 8% or money back. Anyone tried those guys?

Yes i do agree with "freeyourmind". Its Click Through Rate, which i think is more important in PPC

CTR means Click Through Rate. It is usually used to measure the success of an ad campaign. The higher the CTR is, the better. But these days, you're lucky if you get about 3-5% CTR.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

***CTR is click through rate::: For standard content ads, the number of times a user clicked on an ad. For link units, the number of clicks received by ads on a page resulting from a link click.

Short for click-through rate, the ratio of the number of times a user clicks on an online advertisement per number of viewers who view the Web site that has the advertisement on it. For example, if one out of 100 people who visit a specific Web site click on an advertisement and are taken to the advertiser's site, then the CTR of that advertisement is 1/100, or 1%.

A CTR of more than 2 % is considered to be a good value. It indirectly means that your ad are in top positions at some point of day.
