is my ctr TOO high?
does my really high ctr affect my serp position?

 5:57 am on Jun 12, 2007 (gmt 0)

I recently redesigned my site with brand new structure / design. As a result, my ctr is now avg'ing over 20%.

Great news, but, at the same time, my main term has taken a severe tumble: firstly on the .com serps, and now is starting to fall in the local google results.

My question: could it be possible that google sees the really high click through rate, and sees it as people wanting to leave the site quickly due to lack of content (of which there is lots of it and is unique).

I don;t know if it is a combintation of this, together with new algo, and brand new structure. Timing makes it hard to nut out, but my question remins, would the really high ctr adversly impact position in google? (perhaps this is a post for the search forum?)

Probably not. I have over 50% CTR on one site and good SERPs. It's been like that for over a year.

I don't see 20% being a problem. Mine is more than that, so you should be fine.

Only if that high CTR was a result of poor content.

Thanks everyone. Have since worked out I have been hit by 950 penalty.

Nothing to do with CTR.

Thanks again for your thoughts.
