Is too many clicks per ppl coming a bad sign and can google ban me for it?

I think a better answer might be "maybe"..

how many clicks? how many visitors?

if you get 10 visitors per day, and 20 clicks, then you're in trouble.

if you get 10 visitors per day and 1 click, you might get in trouble

if you get 10 visitors per day and 1 click per week, then you're probably ok.

"if you get 10 visitors per day and 1 click, you might get in trouble"

huh? a 10% CTR will get you in trouble?

I have a site that consistently gets between 10% and 20% CTR (has for months), should I be worried?

14 clicks to 25 visitors at a point.

That happens quite often to me, I often have up to 500% meaning 5 clicks to 1 visitor/page impression and this happens especially if you have AdLinks.

I seem to remember someone posting a 2,000% awhile back, certainly I have seen 1,200%.

I have a site that consistently gets between 10% and 20% CTR (has for months), should I be worried?

Not if you are above board and since it's been occuring for months, no problem. I have two which have averaged just over 30% for nearly two years.

If you're on the niche theme and relevant, great:-)

Some people have up to 20-30 CTR. If its valid, you won't get in trouble. If on the other hand, you attract attention to clicks in any way whatsoever, then you could get in trouble.

And therein usually lies the problem since an increase in traffic does not necessarily guarantee a pro-rata increase in earnings:-(

Whilst my smaller satellite sites' CTR's and eCPM's look fantastic they are no match for the core sites' earnings and overall clout!

it wasnt the CTR i was referring to, it was that CTR with NO traffic (10 visitors), particualry if the site is new.

I think the better answer is that no one knows.

Google is looking for patterns of fraudulent clicks - especially from your computer / IP. If you have a high ctr, but the traffic and clicks are genuine there is no reason to be concerned.

I would say that it's not a good idea to tell your freinds and family about the site or the ads just in case they decide to help you out by clicking on the ads a few times.

Unquote

In my niche I have average's better than 15% but right now the site is running near the same CTR but earnings dropped by more than 50% on some pages.

It's been up and down after the rodeo. I can't figure it, but as long as I am in good standing I'll continue to write content. Not much better I could do right now.

Cheers
And to the folks that live in Canada
Have a great long weekend!

To add in reply to the OP

It looks like you may have a site with a low amount of traffic and you got a click dump or you got a click happy person.

This sort of thing happened to me one time, I had a CTR of 135% 7am in the morning at 1 pm it was 11%.

I reported the early am rate to G and they replied with we are monitoring the situation. Haven't heard a negative in reply.

If it continues you can worry

I had a website that was getting 30% CRT. Then I added forum and CTR went from 30% to less than 1%. After a few months I removed adsense from the forum, CTR went back up to around 30%...never had any problems. All clicks were genuine. Even today my CTR is constantly over 15%. I have been with adsense for almost three years, and my average CTR is well over 10%.
