Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I'm new to this forum and also new with AdSense.
Have been accepted about 4 days ago, and everything seems to be OK.
My average CTR is about 1.9%, I wonder is this high, low or OK?
Also, I wonder how true are the $ values from the reports.
If my report shows $x earnings in a month (let's suppose it is over $100), will I get that exact money ($x) by check or this will be audited by google and I will only get $x - $y?
I know many of you got the first checks and I just wonder if there is a difference between check value and the reported values?
As far as CTR, Adsense Terms don't allow disclosure. As for CTR in general, there is a lot that will determine CTR, the subject matter on the site, location of the ads, how targeted the ads to your audience, among other things. Just start from where you are, read what you can about improving your visitor response rate to your site and Adsense, and try ONE thing at a time on just a few pages to see if it helps or not. If it does, then go with that change through your site where feasible. If not, drop that change.
You should probably use a set period of time to give the change a chance ... don't be changing things daily or you will never be sure what works and what doesn't.
