    What is a good CTR
    I am starting to understand all the reports I can see in CJ and I have finally started to understand that I can track just about every aspect of this business Way cool. So anyway I looked and I started with CJ on May 5th my Impressions and clicks were low and I KNOW most of those clickthrus the first few days were mostly me and a few of my friends who I was "walking through" the site. so my CTR was not a good indication. I have just looked over the last two weeks though and my CTR has Quadrupled but still seems awefully low at 0.016 (1.6% i guess) is this good, bad, or average?

    The more targeted your traffic/site, the higher CTR you'll see. It's not uncommon for highly targeted sites with highly targeted visitors with well-integrated affiliate links to see 20-50% CTR. It's not uncommon for generic banners on general sites to see 0.1% CTR.

    The CTR is also going to be affected by how many links you have per page. The more CJ links per page, the lower the CTR.

    Ok that makes sense. I have been trying a very untargeted tactic this week and wow has my CTR gone down. BUT I DID MAKE MY FIRST SALE LAST NITE.
