What's CTR 15% mean, low, high or average? I'm a newbie here and some statistics still confusing me.

It might be low for some or high for others. CTR tells you absolutly nothing imho.

CTR of 15% with organic traffic is high.

But if you are using paid targetted traffic, then this figure is low and you need to improve on your advertising effort.

The above is a general comment. You need to keep in mind variations due to niche, quality of traffic etc etc ..

my traffic is organic and my ctr is much higher than this. I wouldn't stress over it.

Thaks Guys! what a helpful replies.

But if you are using paid targetted traffic, then this figure is low and you need to improve on your advertising effort.

Do you think adsense earnings are worthy for paid traffic? I found my earning per click is only as small of $0.03-0.30 Wouldn't it take a huge clicks to get a refund for the paid traffic?

I donot recommend you try to play upon the adwords/adsense arbitrage..you are likely to lose money.. It does not work in all niches.. Try to grow your site with organic traffic..

I would agree that earnings figure sounds very low. I wouldn't be paying for traffic if I were you.
