how many clicks? how many visitors?
if you get 10 visitors per day, and 20 clicks, then you're in trouble.
if you get 10 visitors per day and 1 click, you might get in trouble
if you get 10 visitors per day and 1 click per week, then you're probably ok.

14 clicks to 25 visitors at a point.
That happens quite often to me, I often have up to 500% meaning 5 clicks to 1 visitor/page impression and this happens especially if you have AdLinks.
I seem to remember someone posting a 2,000% awhile back, certainly I have seen 1,200%.
I have a site that consistently gets between 10% and 20% CTR (has for months), should I be worried?
Not if you are above board and since it's been occuring for months, no problem. I have two which have averaged just over 30% for nearly two years.
If you're on the niche theme and relevant, great:-)

....now if only I could get some decent traffic....
And therein usually lies the problem since an increase in traffic does not necessarily guarantee a pro-rata increase in earnings:-(
Whilst my smaller satellite sites' CTR's and eCPM's look fantastic they are no match for the core sites' earnings and overall clout!
I would say that it's not a good idea to tell your freinds and family about the site or the ads just in case they decide to help you out by clicking on the ads a few times.
In my niche I have average's better than 15% but right now the site is running near the same CTR but earnings dropped by more than 50% on some pages.
It's been up and down after the rodeo. I can't figure it, but as long as I am in good standing I'll continue to write content. Not much better I could do right now.
And to the folks that live in Canada
Have a great long weekend!
It looks like you may have a site with a low amount of traffic and you got a click dump or you got a click happy person.
This sort of thing happened to me one time, I had a CTR of 135% 7am in the morning at 1 pm it was 11%.
I reported the early am rate to G and they replied with we are monitoring the situation. Haven't heard a negative in reply.
If it continues you can worry
