See my previous response - AdSense not necessarily a good choice for forums. Particularly tech forums, I would think.
- Higher instance of ad blocker technology
- They're not there to click ads, they're there to discuss.
- (unrelated to CTR but) UGC issues and AdSense compliance.
I am sure there are probably some forums that have a decent CTR with AdSense, but honestly I never heard of one. Ever. And tech people particularly are into avoiding ads.
If bottom line you're making money with it, and you're not worried about anyone posting anything that could cost you your AdSense account, then don't worry about the CTR, I would say.
