This is my new Google Adsense account and I'm getting traffics only from USA. Since I'm advertizing my website at USA only and all clicks from USA.
My current Page CTR 8.06%.
Is there any problem with my account since its a new account with new website?

I've never personally seen CTR that high. About nine or so years ago it was 4-5%. Much less since.

Depends how much traffic you're getting.

I used to average 20% on one small niche site a few years back but that only had about 200 PVs per day.

IME the more PVs the lower the CTR, I'm currently about 1.5% across several sites.

8% seems high to me as well. Sounds like an MFA site, intensional or not, you'd better be careful. One of the sites I own with the highest CTR averages 1-2%

A few years ago my average was 3-5%, now it's 1% and less.

higher the ctr - the badder the website is. Simple as that.

Yet, if those clicks converts - you should be just fine

Not necessarily. The bottom line is the quality of the traffic and if it performs well for the advertisers.

It depends...like most everything else with AdSense there is no hard and fast rule. I have two pages that are very specific/niche and they consistently average about 8% CTR with a very high RPM. I'd be retired by now if all my pages did as well as these two but since they only get about 200 page views/day between the two of them that's going to take a while.

Meanwhile, the bulk of my pages consistently average less than 3% CTR and a much lower RPM. So, if there's any rule that seems to be consistent from my experience it's what HuskyPup has experienced...the more PV's the lower the CTR.

I manage 2 sites and the more the PV's the lower the CTR is what I am seeing as well.

1 site with about 200 daily PV's has a CTR of just under 8%. The other site, very high volume, is .08% CTR.

0.5% - 3% is about the norm these days, depending on many many variables.

My CTR varies from month to month, but for March 2013, it's been between the 5 to 5.5% range, which is actually pretty good. I've seen some months as low as 3% and others as high as 6%.
