    I regularly get 10 - 15&#37; on one site, the ads displayed are highly relevant to the site content, and so more likely than most to get a click.

    I have other pages, which unfortunately don't seem to get many relevant ads, and their ctr can be around 2% or less.

    Hi,
    5&#37; is a bit low.
    I use to get 20%-30%, sometimes even more.
    It all depends on the placement of the ads on your site.

    Depend on many factor.

    - ads placement & type
    - your content market
    - visitor behavior
    - etc

    if normal website, 5% is a little bit low

    What do you define as 'normal'?

    I have a website with pretty general traffic, and my CTR is about 0.5&#37;.

    It depends on the ads running on your site. Some times i get over 25&#37; and other times 10%. Some topics have great ads that do well and other ones have low Ctr.

    High CTR = your website does not have quality content so they clicked out.

    Low CTR = You have quality content, they read and click relate ads.
