Sort of worried about Adsense CTR

    I have heard that any CTR over 10% can raise red flags for google. Well, some of my pages only get 3-5 views a day and the ctr rate is much higher (a LOT higher) than 10%. (I've researched that 10%+ raises red flags, so that's why I'm using that figure) The clicks are coming from search engine visitors, according to analytics; not hubpages (and obviously not myself! lol). Some of these clicks are worth quite a bit and I really don't want google to think that I'm committing fraud.

    My high CTR only reflects on certain individual pages (hubs). I don't get really high CTR rates on every hub! lol

    My daily and overall cumulative totals of CTR are in a "normal" range.

    My traffic is highly targeted with these particular hubs so I'm not really surprised at the CTR, I just hope it doesn't raise any red flags. I suppose that Google can check IP addresses for clicks and if that's the case, they'd have nothing to prove.

    If anyone else could share some insight on this, I'd appreciate it!
    (I hope it's ok to talk about this since I'm being very vague.)

    If you are getting organic traffic, you really don't have anything to worry about.

    I would enjoy it while it lasts. And congratulations on all that highly targeted traffic - that's an impressive accomplishment!

    Sounds like you are doing really well. As previous posts state, it sounds as though your income is genuine and that you have nothing to worry about.

    I hope it continues for you.

    I believe Google doesn't care about CTR as long as your traffic is organic.

    thanks, guys. I was reading in so many places about CTR and got concerned. Good to know that a high organic CTR is probably not going to cause problems.

    So far high CTR is concerned it depends on the content of the page as well. It is quite possible that some of the main words that you have used on that particular Hub of yours attracts ads that generates high clicks. As already said, relax so long your traffic is organic!

    Its so very random as well, I had one page had lots of visitors no clicks 0% CTR, another had 3 visitors and all them clicked 100% CTR tongue

    How does one tell organic traffic from other? Does organic mean search engines?

      Web traffic which comes from unpaid listing at search engines or directories is commonly known as "organic" traffic
