IPB users: lofiversion generates better CTR?

I display adsense in my IPB forum.
I noticed that CTR generated in the lo-fi version is much higher than in the default forum.
Did anyone else noticed the same in their own forums?

And if that so, what about using the lo-fi pages to display as the default skin for guests and google, and show the full version only to members.

Did anyone running forums ever try this?

I'm running IPB2 and adsense on it, FYI ads do not display when board is set to lo-fi version.

CTR on our IPB lofiversion is 10x what is is in the regular forum. It makes sense because people searching for something land on the lofiversion, see the ads (leader board here) and click away.

People browsing the forum probably read 10 topics before clicking on an ad, if ever.
