I have a problem with a new site, that really drives me crazy. I think, thereīs a problem with adsense or with the code, but I canīt figure it out, maybe you can help me.
My problem is, that the CTR is unbelievable low, usually about 1 %, 2 % if it was a good day. All my other sites (ad placement similar to this one) start at least with 7 or 8 %, which is ok for me. I tried to change the adsense settings - content based instead of interest based, blocked crappy ad categorys, not networks or special advertisers - and it worked pretty well for the first day, because now the CTR was up to 7+ %. I looked (not clicked the ads) through the site and the ads fitted the content (almost) perfectly.
I thought, I solved the problem, but the next day it was down to 1 - 2 % until now. I donīt really know whatīs wrong (again).
Maybe thereīs something wrong with the code, because I use a CMS (MySQL based), that Iīve written by myself, so I assumed, that the adsense code isnīt shown properly - but everything looks ok, when I check it with Firefox or Explorer (or I canīt see whatīs wrong).
Iīll be happy, if anyone could help me out, whatīs wrong.
