    Cool I had to share this...
    I have a couple of advertisements up to purchase sites here and there, and one of the replies I received from a foreign person today contained this screenshot (attached to this post). Notice the CTR...

    Actually, I'm pretty sure it was "forged"...for a 37% CTR, they'd have to have like 1200+ clicks...

    >forged~ 37% CTR ~ 1200+ clicks...
    Um, no, not necessarily. High CTR is not a function of High Number of Clicks. The above screenshot is quite possible.

    Not sure what the CTR is like for URL like this
    fairfield-resorts DOT info

    Some would use google ads in there and support it and push keywords on Overture, enhance, etc

    i heard* that the [ahemmm...] the porn industry is at the forefront of things but I have no idea what the CTR is like for that industry

    I'm not sure how it's possible. 4,288 impressions and 162 clicks is 3.778% CTR, not 37.78% CTR. Something's fishy somewhere.

    Also, that 4 (in 4,288) looks different than the other numbers.

    Here's some additional info (I should've attached the "October" stats earlier) - it's a big jump in my opinion..

    I'm not sure if it's maybe just the screenshot, but I thought the same too (mainly due to particular numbers being bold compared to others).

    the # did look weird and out of place but it could be the screenshot and resolution. There is a big leap from OCT to NOV

    Ha! Didn't notice that. So, whilst I stand by my original statement concerning CTR vs Clicks, the terms Rotting and Denmark do some to mind with this one.

    Its forged

    He got his math wrong while he was forging or he forgot to put a 0 in the clicks field.

    The clicks should be 1620

    4288 impressions and 1620 clicks gives you a 37.78 CTR

    the entire top line except for the clicks looks forged

    Looks like an obvious photoshop. Besides the other reasons already given, unless some accounts have their dollar signs jumping around. Their page eCPM has an amount like 14.50$ and on the same page the $ sign is at the beginning like $63.00.

    A 37% CTR? I must retain this miracle worker as a PPC consultant.

    It's obviously edited (badly) but what made me chuckle was the message of "Your payments are currently on hold" - no wonder why if he has a 37% CTR!
