I have one page that brought in 300% for CTR this last week. It's an article with 1 ad on it. I haven't changed the page in last few years.

it only had 3 clicks this last week and nothing the week before.

I doubt if it had more than a few visitors.

Is this something I should be worried about?

> 3 clicks, few visits

I wouldn't worry about it with real low visitor/pageview and click numbers.

I think it happens when visitors use their back button to return to your page and the page gets pulled from their cache and then they click another ad.

Yup, I had one page that had a 4 spot ad, one visitor and got 400% CTR. They don't even have to hit the back button if they open in a new tab like I tend to.

Ahhh. That makes sense. Thanks.

I suppose I should be happy they thought my page was good enough to come back to then.

I never found 300% CTR. Abnormal! If 10% is enough if EPCM is high we may earn good income.
