    Hi hubbers,
    I joined hubpages days ago and activated my Adsense account.
    Now I notice that I have about 150 impressions of my ads and only 1 click! is it a normal ratio or am I missing something?
    Thanks,

      That may not sound like a lot, but that is about normal. Only a small % of visitors will click.

      On average, 1 click per 100 views is normal, but it depends on the niche, layout, and other variables.

        David 470 speaks the truth!  :-)

        In fact, you can have thousands of impressions without any clicks sometimes, depending on the viewers and the subject matter.

        Google Adwords keyword tool gives an idea of what topics gets clicks and how much they are worth.

          Most of viewers are from Hubpages itself then from Facebook and StumbleUpon.  I'm already using this tool Paul. Thx!

        Yes David it varies but I think if this rate is normal I should double my effort to get some good results!

    I'd just add that the low click rate has only been since Panda. Before that we could expect 2 clicks per 100 views. Now I am lucky to get 2 clicks per 1000!

      That makes it harder but can you explain what you mean by Panda?

        Panda is the name of a Google Algorithm change. It slammed HP and all other "content farms" a few months ago. HP is still attempting to fix the damaged caused by it. wink

    Too many variables to figure out if you're doing well. But, getting one click out of 150 impressions is a start. wink
