Should you be concerned about getting too high CTR?  Reply with quote  

I made a couple of posts asking about various methods to get high CTR on AdSense. Suppose that you get really high CTR. Should you be concerned about getting too high CTR or not really? You're making money and Google is making money, so there is only synergy here?

As long as they're legal clicks then I don't see there being a problem.

If they're all legit (legal) clicks, then you'll be fine.
Don't worry too much.
If you're worried, them send an email to Adsense.

I get very high CTR naturally on a few of my sites, and i've never gotten a message from google. I think your fine unless you are talking about a 50% click through!

Assuming you have a decent number of page views per day, I think the major concern would be a sudden change in CTR, say 10% one day with 1000 page views, then 50% the next day still with 1000 page views.

If you have 6 pageviews a day, then it wouldnt matter so much because the sample size is so small.

i think consistency is the key. if you usually get 2% and then every so often you get 20%, you might have an issue.

I agree with Chris, and if you do suspect fraudulent clicks, email Google ASAP and if they agree then they will simply refund the money to the advertisers, and you won't lose your account.

Does Google have auto detection system?

Yes, and they do it by hand, if your site is getting too many clicks from related IP's it will be looked into. Careful.

Google is so hard to deal with...I would just make sure that all of your traffic is real, don't buy any from 2nd tier search engines....

As long as there is not fraudlent click then if you even recieve 100% CTR there is no problem.BUT if you are receiving 0.5% CTR and clicks are fraudlent then believe me you are in problem.

I dont think you would be banned for a high CTR.
Maybe google would put a marker on it just to check there is no wild swings in CTR.

I have one page that averaged 48% CTR using AdSense over a 15 month period.

Yes, it's completely legit.

No images by the ads, no request to click and nothing against the TOS.

How is the CTR so high?

The page is highly focused, it includes a logo and simple horizontal navigation, followed by a short useful article on a specific subject, followed by a leaderboard of ads.

Visitors read the article and about half the time they will click one of the related targeted ads that follows. Also keep in mind that if a reader happens to click two ads that counts as 200% CTR, or if they check out all 4 ads: 400% CTR. Overall it averages out to over 48% CTR.
