I can't understand why in the last 5 days my CTr has been about 1% or lower. My first few days it was 3-6% and all my ads are blended in and well targeted. The people who visit my niche in internet finance/marketing are usually the types of people looking for as much info as possible and seem like the type who would easily get distracted or interested in an ad about what they were looking for. Is there something I'm missing? Is someone willing to take a look at my site? StickyMail me if so.
[but doesn't everyone see the same ads over and over?]
It depends on how advertiser-rich your niche is. One of my sites has a very narrow base of advertisers, such that practically all pages in the site share the same ads, no matter what the topic is. On the other hand, another one of my sites is so rich with advertisers that all pages show very different ads. In fact, some of its pages rotate many different ads within themselves.
Little point in paying much attention for at least 4 - 6 weeks. You may have earned $$ which google isn't yet showing in your reports - they'll show up later. If you're new to adsense you might be on probation - concentrate on content instead. When i add new pages i find that CTR is always very low for a few months, then it gradually improves up to my average ctr.
