Is your site getting the same ads over and over again? Your visitors might have become accustomed seeing the same ads, and are no longer being enticed to click again.

thats very possible...but even if so...some uniques should be clicking and most of my traffic right now is unique...but doesn't everyone see the same ads over and over?

|My first few days it was 3-6% |
Okay, I have to ask... how many days have you done this?

It's only been up for about 2 weeks which I realize isn't very long, but I waited a week to see if those small CTR reports were only a lfuke but its been about a week straight now.

Or maybe the opposite. Maybe one or two advertisers were getting most of the clicks and now they're not showing up in your placements anymore.

[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.

i think in googles sponsored search around 70+ advertisers were advertising my main keyword(s)

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.

now call this irelevant due to the small number of impressions but my CTR today is 9%! I know it may mean nothing but it gives me hope again!
