I've read that Google may consider high CTRs as evidence of click fraud. Naturally, CTR fluctuates and I wondered whether anyone here has any experience of legitimate traffic having been considered click fraud by Google.
Do you have channels set up for specific hubs OR do you have your Adsense linked to Analytics? If you could spot which hub the clicks are coming from, that could provide some answers.
Also, it might be an idea to be careful about revealing CTR - it's against Adsense TOS.
I have experienced high CTRs on certain days and it looked like someone deliberately clicked on my ads repeatedly, but Google didn't close my account.
And like WryLilt said, you are not allowed to reveal your CTRs. Clicks might not get you banned but revealing this info can. I would suggest you to edit your post ASAP.
I think generally google knows more about detecting fraud then just a high percentage. If you are not committing fraud or breaking TOS don't worry about it. Certain topics just have higher click through than others.
