---- Connection Between Interest Based Ads and Low CTR?

Please post a link to the Google page that defines the required "interaction with an advertiser" as anything beyond visiting the advertisers website.
ken_b, I'm not sure why you ask me for that.
However, as for my previous posts, I base my opinion on two things:
1) Definitions of the words "interaction" and "advertiser". It should follow, that searching on Google and visiting AdSense partner sites is interaction with Google, not with advertisers. The visitor loads the ad content merely from the Google servers.
2) Google specifies the "interaction with advertisers" by giving an example at https://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=140379 It says "such as visits to an advertiser's website." Which seems to confirm 1).
Now, where does Google say that "interaction with the advertiser" is defined as searching on Google or visiting AdSense partner sites (as levo wrote above)?
