I think You do not receive traffic from search engines just right now.

CTR from search engine traffic should be higher.

Just promoting in forums or news groups has usual a very low CTR.

Also please post the theme. Some themes like fan sites have usual a very low CTR.

Be careful in the future what stats you post. From AdSense TOS:

Confidentiality. You agree not to disclose Google Confidential Information without Google's prior written consent. "Google Confidential Information" includes without limitation: . . . (b) click-through rates or other statistics relating to Site performance in the Program provided to You by Google. . . However, You may accurately disclose the amount of Google’s gross payments to You pursuant to the Program.

No. That's not good. The CTR is pathetic. But there is hope. The CTR is the easiest thing to tweak. Set up different channels and see how different ad formats, colors, placements, and topics perform. Once you start to spend some of the advertisers money you will have an idea of how profitable your niche/topic/site may be.

I hear forums are having good success with the section targetting.

if thats forums you should get atleast .5%, I currently get about 1%, just work on optimizing your ads a bit.

bongkph -

Knappster is right about the ToS. In the future, please refrain from disclosing statistics other than gross earnings.

If you haven't done so already, I recommend visiting the AdSense Tips page which will give you some ideas for optimizing your site:


Hope that helps,
