    It does sound pretty bad but whether it really is would be dependant on many factors; ad placement, level of interest from your site visitors, etc.

    If your site is a forum, a visitor could very well view 20 pages before being in a position where they would be likely to click. In that case, you would have 20 ad displays on one visitor, and a 0.13% clickthrough rate would in reality be a 2.6% clickthrough rate, which isn't stellar but certainly isn't bad by any means.

    I would have to say that .13% CTR sucks, but considering all of the ways that banners can not be shown (ad blocking software mostly) if the impression pixel registers 100% of the time, you might not be getting real results.
    Are you serving that banner yourself or is it served from the merchant's web site? That makes a difference too. I do hardly any banners anymore, but when I do, I copy it to my server and serve it myself, removing the width and height attributes in HTML, which is what gets it removed by the adblockers of the world.

    It's pretty bad, but not too unusual for banners.

    If there isn't a specific reason for not doing, I would try same format AdSense in the same place to see the difference.

    Hardly anyone goes that far down its below the footer almost so I doubt adsense would make more than what it currently is paying $2.64 CPM
