How to increase CTR?

 11:45 pm on Oct 12, 2005 (gmt 0)

My CTR is 0.9% ~ 1.1%

Page impressions 8K to 16K

My site run a photo gallery and forums.

What am i doing wrong?

I made changes with the placing (right,top,left,colors) but nothing changed

how ppl do 25% CTR?

I'd say photo galleries and forums are notoriously low CTR sites.


Just work on placement and targeting, but don't expect miracles.

What kind of sites are not low CTR?

Thousands. :)

Too broad of a question, really. A lot depends on the optimization, but regular forum users are unlikely to click ads, and photo galleries just don't convert well from what I've heard.

Hey, i'd be THRILLED to have even that CTR. Mine is *half* of what you have at best. I can't figure out a better way to get it on my own site without compromising the integrity or the design or annoying regular users.

This is community site : gallery and forum over 1000 members registerd. the ads are specific to the hobi.

Articles about a very specific subject matter, especially a specific product(that's hard to find locally for most people), have the best CTRs, IMO. Wrapping the text around a square or rectangle ad can easily yield a 25% CTR.
