I think You do not receive traffic from search engines just right now.

CTR from search engine traffic should be higher.

Just promoting in forums or news groups has usual a very low CTR.

Also please post the theme. Some themes like fan sites have usual a very low CTR.

No. That's not good. The CTR is pathetic. But there is hope. The CTR is the easiest thing to tweak. Set up different channels and see how different ad formats, colors, placements, and topics perform. Once you start to spend some of the advertisers money you will have an idea of how profitable your niche/topic/site may be.

bongkph -

Knappster is right about the ToS. In the future, please refrain from disclosing statistics other than gross earnings.

If you haven't done so already, I recommend visiting the AdSense Tips page which will give you some ideas for optimizing your site:
