    I bring to your attention section 7 of the AdSense terms of service, which prohibits revealing click-through rate.  Google has been known to suspend accounts, so I'd be careful.

    I'd love to know who the people are who expect to make 1 or 2 %

    The accepted norm for the majority of adsense publishers is anything from 10-20% many sites will regularly make upto 30% It all depends on lots of factors inclucing  how you build your sites. what are your target market and which ad positions you use. I am talking about hand built sites with good content If you want to generate loads of site and use a few gray hat tricks then you'll get a much higer CTR...

      Anyone coming in late... the first post (by me) in this thread was not in fact the first post. It's been deleted.

      I do believe what you want to do is increase the Click Through Rate.
