    200% ctr?!?

    I looked at my ad stats today, and I noticed one of my ads for a very low-traffic site got 1 impression and 2 clicks! That's a 200% CTR!

    I assume it was clicked by the same person. Will it be ok?

    Yep nothing wrong in that, it will be stable after some time, I hope that one person won't click it again

    Do you have link units? Probably two clicks from one impression. I have this happen from time to time on a couple of my low traffic sites.

    I think nothing wrong if visitor is unik and visit site with honestly. but if they click on your add and close without checking that site and if this happen again and again then may be you are in trouble.

    Check the log files and ban that IP.

    Same Here

    Relatively few visits and more clicks result in a CTR over 100% on one of my sites.
    I have downloaded the statscounter logs in any case ...
    but I am not able to tell which visitor clicked any ads

    Will it be ok, too or shall I inform Google? My overall CTR for all sites is in the normal range.

    Have reported it to Google

    Thanks to Charles' link I reported the unusual CTR to Adsense to protect myself.
    Even with falling CTR trend the CTR might be too high at the end of the day.
